If you have not as yet renewed your TICA membership for 2011, you can go to www.tica.ie to download a registration form that you can post with your cheque, or register and pay over the Internet. For the next couple of weeks, we would ask you if at all possible to use the Internet option, as our Treasurer is away, but he will forward registrations received over the Internet to our insurers.
It is important to note that if your membership fees have not been received by 5pm on Friday 11th February, you will no longer be able to access any TICA members benefits. Our new membership mailing list will also come into effect on that day; so only 2011 members will receive information via emails or texts. We appreciate that it is hard to keep up with all the paperwork at the start of a new year, but hope that if you have not already done so you will take the necessary steps to renew your TICA membership for the year ahead.
