The CVAM group membership year ends on 31st August and renewal subscriptions are due on 1st September. If you are a Full IAM Member, then membership of the CVAM group is £15 a year. For a ‘Friend of CVAM’ it is £5 a year.  For Associate members, CVAM Group membership is included within the Advanced Rider Course fee for up to 12 months.

CVAM Annual Membership Fees Can Be Paid Online

We can accept your membership fees by electronic transfer if you bank online. Please see the relevant forms on the Documents page for bank details, and remember to include your name as a reference in the instruction to your bank, to assist in identifying payments to our bank account.

If you do pay by this method, please inform our Treasurer using the Contact Form, so that the receipt of the payment can be checked. Download the Membership Renewal form from the Documents page and post to the address on the form, so that changes to your personal details can be noted and membership of the IAM checked.

Have you Gift Aided your membership fees?

The Group benefits from tax recovery from the Government, through the Gift Aid scheme, by around £250 per annum. Some members haven’t signed a Gift Aid Form who may be able to do so. If you think you are one of them, please download the Gift Aid form and either hand it in at a social night or send it to our Treasurer (address details are on the form).
