Journal Publication Dates
This page is maintained by the Membership Secretary to give members an indication as to when they can expect their journal to be delivered.
Target Dispatch Dates
Please note that with effect from journal 4/14 the target despatch date was brought forward to the last week of each odd-numbered month. This necessitated a slight change to the procedure governing the renewal months in respect of which members receive renewal/reminder forms with each journal. In practice, this gives members additional time in which to renew their membership before the Late Renewal Fee rule applies (see below).
Our aim is to complete the journal and have it printed and distributed at the end of the first month indicated on the cover – which is every ‘odd’ month. So for example the first edition of each year is the ‘January/February’ issue and we will endeavour to get it produced and sent out in the last week of January.
However, please bear in mind that although that we will do our best to adhere to these plans there are always a number of factors that can influence exactly when it is sent out and when it will actually drop though members’ letterboxes. The print run is subject to the printers’ own schedules and when they have available slots in their workload. Plus, of course, once it is packed and put in the post, the delivery is then at the mercy of the postal system and we cannot guarantee exactly when it will arrive.
The above table will keep you updated on the latest information regarding the scheduled dates for each issue. Please be patient and allow time for delivery before contacting anyone. If you have not received your copy after a reasonable period has elapsed after the ‘actual date’ (which has been updated on the schedule) to allow for delivery, then please contact the Membership Secretary.
Thank you for your consideration.
