Should you cease to be a member of SaPAR then this process will be cancelled. It is important to select the GoCardless – Payment button either before or after successfully submitting the Application Form. Your membership cannot be processed unless you have set up the payment with Go-Cardless.

Once the form has been received by our Membership Secretary and payment has been confirmed you will receive confirmation of your membership.
