If you aren’t planning to renew your membership for 2021, we ask that you please fill out the contact form at the end of this post before DECEMBER 10TH of this year*. We will then make sure you aren’t sent a renewal invoice in December and annoying reminders in early 2021!

Why do we need to have you cancel your membership in writing?

Because we are a registered organization here in Germany, we are required to follow the rules specified in our by laws when members leave the area or otherwise wish to withdraw their membership in our club.

Those rules are:

1. Members must notify us in writing if they wish to cancel their membership in the club (emails are fine).

2. Members must notify us before the end of 2020 if they wish to cancel their membership for 2021.

3. Members who do not cancel their membership before the end of 2020 and then fail to pay their renewal dues before the end of the first quarter in 2021 will be mailed one reminder invoice and then a letter notifying them that they are being removed from the membership list.

If you know you will be leaving, tell us now! It will save lots of headaches for everyone.

*If you miss the December 10th deadline, please let us know anyways! You might still get an invoice for 2021 in the mail but we can still cancel the reminders.
