Reminder Membership Fees Now Due

Membership fees are due now, please log on with your user name and password. A link to do so is at the bottom of this section and have your credit card details handy. Check your details are correct and update if necessary. Thanks to all the members who have already paid.

On the right side of your page you will see your Membership Type, your Membership Status and a Renew Now blue link if you are unfinancial, which is most likely since we have not and are not sending out invoices this year.

Click on Renew now and you will be asked to put your Username & Password again at the top of the page, select your Membership Type, enter the name on your credit card & it's 16 digit #. Then enter the credit card expiry month & year and the 3 digit CSV # from the back of your card and then click Submit Payment only once.

Once the payment has been processed a new window will open notifying you your payment has been accepted and giving you the option to print a Tax Invoice which could be handy if you wish to claim your membership as a Tax Deduction.

If you wish to pay by cheque or money order please post to ACS SA Branch C/- PO Box 212 Kent Town SA 5071. For EFT payments, contact me for our bank account details and make sure to put your name in the Reference line so we know who the payment is from.

No matter how you wish to pay you need to click the "renew now" link to find the amount due from your page on the ACS website.

When you make a payment using the new system you will be prompted to print off your invoice after the transaction. Please note this is the only time you can do this, these invoices are electronically generated at the time of payment and we have no way of reissuing them.

Hopefully things will run smoothly, but if you do have any difficulties we apologise in advance and will do our best to rectify any issues asap. Please contact me if you do have problems via the link below.

It only takes a minute or two so get online and pay as we can always do with the funds and don't forget unfinancial members cannot attend the AGM or enter the awards.

If you do want to be involved nomination forms are downloadable from our website and the committee gets together generally on the first Monday night of each month for about an hour or so.

Let us know Kinemagraphe or not Kinemagraphe?

We'd like to get your opinions before the AGM of whether to stick with the newsletter name Kinemagraphe or update it to something new. So click on the link below and vote to change or not to change.

The Kinemagraphe newsletter name and masthead have been with our branch for a long time thanks to retired member Geoffrey Williams who originally came up with the name and design.

Do you wish to keep the newsletter name or change it and if you do want to change it we need to know what name you would prefer? Here's some suggestions we have received so far: Highlights Magazine, Images, SA Cinematographer, Spectrum, Field Of View, Showreel, Snippets, Slate or Circle of Confusion.

After we receive membership feedback a vote will be held at the AGM for change or not and for a new name if that is what the membership wants.

Yes or No re Kinemagraphe name change. » - Please put your preference to change or not in subject line & suggested name in body of email.


Accreditation closes Friday, September 9, so if you are interested, contact me for an application form. There are details on the website re some of the requirements for applying for accreditation.
