• If I move, how do I transfer my membership to a different RMA Branch?


    Many members join more than one branch or club. When you log into your online account, you'll see what membership(s) you currently hold and you can request additional membership to, or cancellation of, membership to your chosen branches/clubs.

    We understand that there will be other commitments and priorities in your life. If you cannot attend a Branch or Club event, the Secretaries will keep you informed of anything you may have missed.

    6. Moving forward, whenever you log in, your ‘username' will always be your email address; your password will be whatever you chose as part of the above process. Please also remember that your password will be case-sensitive, so if you ever mis-type it (or mis-type your email address), the system won't let you in until you've typed both correctly.
