Right yes. That's what I meant. We could ask people to set up a yearly standing order.

And the membership secretary (Henk) would need to adjust procedures a little. No need to send a reminder, but would need to check that the direct debit has gone through each time. In the long run it would probably reduce the amount of nagging emails and other processing needed.

I suspect we would find it very hard to get DD authorisation. Using a 
standing order is of course possible.
