Please note that membership is counted per calendar year (Jan-Dec) regardless of when the membership fee is paid. For instance, someone who pays the fee on November 1st will enjoy the benefits of BAPS membership only until December 31th in that calendar year (i.e., only two months). We therefore encourage members to pay their fee in January of each year, at which time reminders for membership renewal are emailed to our members.

Renewing your membership

On January 10th, 20th, and 30th, emails will be sent to members whose membership has expired. They can renew their membership by clicking on the personal link in that email. Membership cannot be renewed in another way and all members must use their own personal renewal link. Members who paid for multiple years and who therefore do not need to renew their membership will not receive such an email. New members can of course always become a member via the website. If you are unsure about your current membership status or if you want other information about renewing your membership or about becoming a member, please contact 'Gilles Vannuscorps' gilles.vannuscorps@uclouvain.be .
