2017 Membership Renewals

April 28, 2017

In response to recent queries, the MEA would like to take a moment to further guide its members through the new online membership renewal process. You may renew your membership through the MEA website here by clicking on the "Members" tab on the right side of the page, then scrolling down to "Renewals".  You will be prompted to log in to access your infomation. If you experience issues logging in, please contact Lesley McCauley at Lesley@ogra.org or 289-291-OGRA ext. 27 for assistance. Once logged in, you may view your transactions, and there are "Paid" and "Unpaid" tabs, all of which allow you to see if you have paid for 2017 and previous years. You will recieve an email confirmation upon completion of your transaction. The option to pay by cheque is now available.

Please note that the MEA is currently working on having auto-email reminders with invoices attached for your convenience. For now, invoices will only be accessible online as described above. Only corporate members (municipalities with 10 or more MEA members) will receive invoices in the mail. Please click here for the 2017 Membership Fee Schedule. Kindly note that even while logged in, you will not have access to member-only content on the MEA website if your membership is expired.

Please do not hesitate to contact Rayna Gillis (Rayna@ogra.org) or Lesley McCauley (Lesley@ogra.org), at 289-291-OGRA if further assistance is needed.
