Ha! - I have the definitive answer from EFDSS on membership and LO! it transpires that Derek was somewhat pessimistic in what he told us -
The fact is that things are exactly as I wanted them to be. Join *now* and be a member til the end of 2009 - Hoorah - cheque in post tomorrow!
It's more obvious if you think of all memberships ending on 31st December.
People who join in the autumn, paying the full 2008 rate, get membership for the rest of 2008 and all of 2009. A bargain!
