We believe that for the quantity and quality of facilities on offer, we are unbeatable!
Full membership for up to one year is only £5.00 – and has been held at that price since YMUG was formed, more than a decade ago!
You can pay up front for membership into the future at the usual price of £5.00 per year, but we can also offer you our SPECIAL DISCOUNT of a FREE FIFTH YEAR when you pay for four years at once (£20.00)!
We have two options for family membership.
A four member licence and a six member licence. Purchasing a family licence option will get you full membership and a number of discount codes (sent separately) that you can give to members of your family so they can sign up on the site. Family members currently enjoy all the benefits of full membership.
Overseas members and expatriate Yorkies (and other Brits) can enjoy all the benefits of being a member of YMUG, except perhaps the monthly meetings. For their convenience, we do accept payment through the PayPal system in a few currencies other than British Sterling, although of course, you are encouraged to pay in GBP. If you are wanting to join YMUG but cannot use the PayPal system, do not have access to banks which can make payments in GBP, or cannot pay through relatives resident in the UK, we do allow free membership for those who really cannot contribute to our funds — at our sole discretion.
Free membership is offered to those members who give their time voluntarily to offer help and support frequently to other members, and those who hold office in YMUG, volunteering their services on a regular basis.
No administrative fees
Some methods of payment (eg, PayPal and credit cards) involve administrative charges being made to the companies accepting the payment. Currently, we do not pass these charges on to our members, as we believe that these methods of payment make our lives a little easier than some other methods, like cheque payments for instance. We don’t like paying these extras out of our funds, but we also don’t like asking for you to pay more! Of course, we reserve the right to change this policy in the future, should it erode our funds beyond what is reasonable.
There is rarely any charge over and above the full membership price of £5, although we do reserve the right to accept donations towards, for instance, catering at meetings when provided.
