Important changes to HESG membership

Behind the scenes, the team has been working to consolidate HESG’s finances and streamline membership management. We would therefore like to inform all past, current, and future HESG members of three important changes.

Updated membership renewal period

Previously, HESG membership ran on a fixed academic calendar, with renewals due on October 1st each year. Effective immediately, new memberships will last for one year from the time of purchase. Memberships can be renewed at any time, with any remaining days automatically carried over.

All current memberships (paid under the previous arrangement) are valid until October 1st 2018.

New payment gateway

Previously, payments were processed by the University of Manchester. All membership payments will now be processed through the HESG website using PayPal. You can pay using your PayPal account or by entering your credit or debit card details. Your membership subscription will renew automatically after one year, but you can cancel your subscription at any time. Your data will be handled securely, as outlined in our privacy policy.

Visit the membership page for more details.

Mailing list

HESG will use MailChimp to send out announcements to members and non-members. As a member, you will receive members-only updates. You can join the new mailing list using the form below.
