All members should have received an email from HQ advising of the following but in case you haven’t here is some important news.
Starting with the June edition, HQ will no longer assume that you want to receive a printed copy of What’s Brewing and BEER magazine by post. You will therefore need to let them know if you would like to continue to receive printed copies of the publications either by contacting them online, over the phone, by email or post – see below for details.
CAMRA are asking members to “opt-in” to the printed service because it currently sends out more than 100,000 publications a month by post to members. This costs the Campaign a large amount of money, which could be used to fund other activities. It also has a significant environmental cost. Our research suggests a large proportion of the copies we print and post, and therefore the money we spend, is being wasted on unwanted and unread publications.
If you are happy to not receive a printed copy of What’s Brewing and BEER, you can still stay up-to-date with all of the latest news at wb.camra.org.uk. Here, you will find digital versions of What’s Brewing and BEER along with regular updates in between issues.
If you have already opted out of getting these publications by post or are happy to switch to online today you don’t need to do anything further at this stage.
If you still wish to receive a printed copy of What’s Brewing and BEER you will still be able to do so, but you will need to get in touch. You can contact CAMRA:
- Online – log into the Members’ Section at www.camra.org.uk with your membership number and password. Click “edit my membership information” then “amend my details” and under the “preferences” tab you can switch WB and/or BEER back to “by post”.
- By phone – call 0330 058 3130 and follow the automated instructions to change your WB/BEER preference.
- By email – send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “BEER/WB Preferences” and indicate if you still want to receive BEER, WB, or both, by post.
- Write – send your membership number and preference for receiving WB, BEER or both by post to: Membership Contact Preferences, 230 Hatfield Road, St Albans Herts, Al1 4LW.
