Join the Alberta Donkey & Mule Club – no donkey or mule required!
Annual Membership (February to January)
Note- At the last AGM there was a vote taken to modify the membership fee structure. Beginning in 2017
An annual membership will be increased to $25/year. However, a 5 year membership is now available for $100,
which permits those who opt for the longer term to maintain the $20/year rate.
Annual Membership: $25.00, 5 year membership $100.00
ADMC is initiating a new electronic option for membership applications. Memberships are from February 1 until January 31.
There are two aspects to the changes. One is that e-transfers are now being accepted for your membership dues. Details are outlined on the new application form.
The second change is the form itself. The form may still be printed and filled out manually, then mailed (as may your fee), but a second option is that the fillable pdf file may be electronically edited with your information and attached as an e-mail and sent to the club's membership coordinator.
Unfortunately, there are many pdf readers, even many versions of the almost ubiquitous Adobe reader. Some have been incompatible with the new form. Problems have been encountered with unsupported fonts and with readers that do not allow a fillable form to be filled! The fillable fields are currently in the font "Arial Bold" if you need to and know how to download fonts that are not currently available on your pdf reader.
One common problem has been that trying to fill the form from whatever pdf reader your browser defaults to for viewing has often resulted in the inability to either fill/save the completed form. In the vast majority of these occurances the problem has been resolved by downloading the file, then using your pdf reader (like Adobe or Evince) to edit the fillable fields.
Remember if editing the form becomes too frustrating, it can always be printed and filled manually and sent using the post office as before. As well, if you are unable to take advantage of e-transfers for your membership dues a lot of the advantage of the fillable form is lost. Many banks support e-transfers, but some do not, and there are many members who seem reluctant to use any form of on-line funds systems. So for those, the old approach should work just fine.
