Other Ways to Pay

Standing Orders

Please fill in the Annual standing order form (doc) (pdf) or (new) Monthly standing order form (doc) (pdf) and take the standing order form into your bank or set it up through your online bank access using the form as a guide.

Please note that we no longer accept standing order forms sent to us, as we have had occasional problems acting as a third party with original copies, and the banks reject email printouts without an original signature.

Once the standing order is set up, please tell the Honorary Treasurer what reference you used. This should be your libdem number or (if you receive it in time) your GLD membership number, with or without "GLD".

Direct Online Payment

If paying by direct online payment, please follow the procedure for standing orders, but let us know in the email with the reference that it is a one-off so we can remind you come renewal time.

Cheque or Cash

For these payment methods it is best to follow the procedure for joining by post, and enclose the payment in the same envelope. Please make Cheques payable to "Green Liberal Democrats".

Concessionary rates

These are available for the unwaged, full time students and people in receipt of the state pension. Proof of your date of birth will be needed for the latter, as a one-off, and proof of your status will be sought for the first two on a regular basis (probably annually).

Full membership is only open to paid up members of the Liberal Democrats. However, people who do not wish to join the party can still apply for Associate Member status and receive CHALLENGE and our other mailings and attend GLD Conference including speaking rights.

Associate membership is subject to Executive approval if you are a member of a different political party.
