Membership Renewal for 2020-2021

OGEHR membership renews on October 1 for the 2020-2021 ringing year, and the OGEHR website is now open for renewals. We encourage all choirs and ringers to renew, to help keep YOUR guild healthy and active during COVID-19.

In view of the unprecedented events in the past six months, we are making the following changes to the fees for the 2020-2021 year:

  1. Organizations - $90
  2. Affiliates - fee waived, provided that your choir has renewed its membership
  3. Individual - reduced to $20

Even though the affiliate fee is waived, we ask that all affiliates go through the renewal process to check and fill in any gaps in their profile, particularly if you have not told us which bell choir you ring with. This helps us provide appropriate membership services, and will be necessary if you wish to take advantage of the online tutorials.

How to renew your membership

Go to www.ogehr.ca. If you are already an OGEHR member, go to the upper right corner of the screen and click Log in. Your log in credentials are your email address and your password. If you have forgotten your password, please contact Helen at membership@OGEHR.ca and she will send you a temporary one. Then click on Membership – Join OGEHR, which takes you to a page listing the three types of membership. Below that is a coloured bar. Clicking on it takes you to your profile and allows you to renew as indicated below.

  1. If you are the person renewing for a bell choir, please add the names and email addresses of any affiliates whose membership is also paid by the organisation (there’s no fee for them this year, but it keeps the records straight).
  2. If you are an affiliate whose membership is paid by your choir, you only  need to update your profile.
  3. If you are an affiliate paying their own fee, please review your profile and click on Renew (again, there is no fee payable this year, but it keeps our records straight).
  4. If you are an individual ringer or supporter, the process is as usual - only the fee has changed.
  5. Payment by credit card is quick and easy for you and for us, but if you need to pay by cheque, please make it payable to OGEHR and send to Helen Coxon, OGEHR Membership Secretary, 61 Wheatfield Road, Etobicoke, ON M8V 2P5.

ADVANCE NOTICE

For future years, in order to make life simpler all round, we will be moving to a two-year membership cycle. Beginning at the October 2021 renewal, fees will be $180 for choirs; $20 for affiliates and $80 for individuals. This is an advance notice so that you can include this in budgets going forward.

Please direct any questions to Helen Coxon at membership@OGEHR.ca
