Happy New Year AHF members!
The current Board of Governors wishes you the very best in this new year. It has been a pleasure working with everyone and watching the AHF grow as an organization as it continues to acheive its stated goals. Now, it is time to move forward and hold elections for another round of officers to guide our organization as we move into the new year. Elections will take place between January 7th to January 27th.
In December of 2012, the AHF website was successfully migrated to a new Internet Service Provide. The CMS and plugins were upgraded and the former s2Member plugin was retired. Now all membership accounts are handled through eMember.
With this new membership manager, you no longer need to sign up for recurring annual PayPal subscriptions. Instead you only sign up manualy each year. However, even after your account has expired you will still be able to log into your account and initiate a renewal without having to create a new account.
In coming weeks, we will be manually deactiving all previous membership subscriptions through PayPal. You will receive an email from PayPal saying that your AHF subscription was cancelled. However, rest assure – your AHF membership is not actually being cancelled, just the automatic renewal. All previous membership accounts were migrated to the new eMember module, retaining your original expiration/subscription dates. This means that your current membership will not expire until the annual date for your original membership subscription. You may renew your annual membership at any time by logging into your account and going through the renewal process.
I would like to extend a great thank you to everyone who has dedicated their time and efforts into bringing the new 2011 website to life. This new site will certainly help us grow as an organization as we continue our mission of preserving the fencing arts for future generations of fencers, researchers, historians and historical enthusiasts.
