I have spent a great deal of time trying to find a more meaningful way for COCHASA to serve its members, and to clarify its membership into more user-friendly categories that are easily accessible to existing as well as prospective new members. The ExCo has agreed on the information that is now available on the website for members, and ask you to please take a look at the information under the Membership Menu:
- For those members who have paid their subscription for this year, please ignore the proforma invoice that the system generates - we just need your details on the database.
- For those Members with fees outstanding, please ignore the joining fee on the Proforma and submit your payment should you wish to remain a member. If not, please submit your resignation in writing so that we can officially remove you from the membership. I will also update the Directory once the current payment is received.
- Individual Associate members who do not belong to any Full Member organisation are welcome to sign up now so as to facilitate the renewal season starting in January. No Setup fee will be charged as this has been covered before.
- Individual Associate members of any Full Member organisation under our new system can either wait and rejoin in that capacity next year once the Full Member has renewed their membership, but are also welcome to join now. These individuals need to pay the Setup fee for their website listing, should they wish to avail themselves of that benefit.
