Membership should be renewed annually by 1st March.  Members who have not renewed by 1st May will be removed from the membership list and those that renew after that date will be required to pay a rejoining fee of £30.  Associate members with membership cards that expire on the 1st March of the current year will not be able to continue their observed rides or take part in club rides out.  Reminders are posted in the club magazine.

Renewing your EKAM membership does NOT renew your IAM RoadSmart membership; this is dealt with separately by IAM RoadSmart. You must have current membership of IAM RoadSmart in order to renew your EKAM membership.

There are several methods by which existing members and associates can renew their EKAM membership: -

  • Complete the form that is contained within the February issue of the club magazine.  Payment options are included below.
  • Download and print the form, and follow the instructions at the foot of the form.  Payment options are included below.
  • Complete the on-line form.  Payment options are included below.

Payment Options and Instructions

A completed paper form should be sent to: -

The Membership Secretary
East Kent Advanced Motorcyclists

c/o 42 Western Esplanade
HERNE BAY
Kent    CT6 8JA

The correct payment should be submitted at the same time as follows: -

  • New Member joining fee:  £30.00 cheque or Bank Transfer.
  • Associate:  £30.00 cheque or Bank Transfer.
  • Full Member:  £25.00 as cash or cheque;  £22.50 by Bank Transfer.

These fees may be paid by cash, in person, to the Membership Secretary at a club event. NEVER put cash in the post.

Electronic Bank Transfers are required to be paid to "East Kent Advanced Motorcyclists" quoting the Bank Sort Code 30-90-28 and Account Number 01280962.  The payment reference should be your EKAM membership number followed by your surname (e.g. 1234SMITH).

Cheques should be crossed and made payable to "East Kent Advanced Motorcyclists" and not "EKAM".

If your EKAM membership fee is paid by Standing Order or Direct Bank Transfer you should still complete the EKAM Membership Renewal Form to ensure we have the correct details on file.  Standing Orders will be gradually phased out and new Standing Orders will no longer be accepted by the club.

IMPORTANT:  All renewals received AFTER 30th April will be required to pay a Joining/Re-Joining membership fee of £30.00.  Members should also note that it is their responsibility to ensure that repeating and automated electronic bank transfers are updated if the membership fees are changed.


To comply with the General Data Protection Regulations 2018 EKAM are required to obtain agreement from each member that he/she is willing to: -

  1. Receive information on training, committee, and social events, together with newsletters/magazines relating to the group and Road Safety.
  2. Appear in or be referred to in or on group social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, etc., group newsletters/magazines and group related websites.

EKAM will regard membership renewal as tacit agreement to the above clauses unless the Membership Secretary is notified to the contrary in writing by the individual concerned.
