Membership Renewals – last call!

Dear Ouessant Sheep Society Members

Thank you to all of you who have renewed your Membership Subscriptions for 2024 and continue to support the Society and the wonderful Ouessant breed.

This subscription period we have been transitioning from the original LoveAdmin membership system (for all who joined the society pre-January 2024), to Grassroots for all new OSS Memberships. Going forward all Membership data and Sheep data will be in one place and managed by yourselves in your own Grassroots flock book account. Here you can pay your subscriptions amend your own personal data, password, and data protection settings, as well as managing the changes to the records of your registered and birth notified sheep.

All previously agreed automatic payments (like Direct Debit) set up in LoveAdmin were cancelled before any payment requests were issued. This way there were the options to pay via GoCardless, the payment system LoveAdmin uses to collect subscriptions, or to chose other payment methods such as BACS, Paypal or in your flock books.

I acknowledge that for many members the process has been more complicated than before. After 31 March, the society will no longer be using LoveAdmin as a membership database or a means to collect subscription payments.

As this period ends, I would like to make a final request to anyone who has not yet renewed and wishes to remain a member of the Ouessant Sheep Society (OSS) to do so now using one of the payment methods below.
