Introduction and Instructions for the New MG Car Club Sydney Membership System

Over the past several months we have been working behind the scenes to choose and set up a new system for the management of club memberships. We have settled on the Wild Apricot system, and look forward to using it to improve the reliability and accuracy of our membership database, make it easier for members to manage their memberships, provide a better application experience to new members and provide efficiencies and useful tools to the volunteers who look after the club.

We will be moving across to this new system over the coming days, and wanted to provide a set of instructions to you to aid you in your use of the system. Please read on, and if you have any questions or need assistance, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Sheila, our membership secretary, at [email protected] or Seth at [email protected].

MG Car Club Sydney Profile

Membership Profile

You can log in to the members’ section of the website by hovering over ‘Members’, the far-right option in the menu, and clicking ‘Member Login’. Once logged-in, you’ll see additional pages that are only available to logged-in members.

Once you have set up your password and logged into the MG Car Club Sydney website hover your mouse over ‘Members’ in the top-right of the menu and click ‘Profile‘.

Your membership card is visible in your profile – you are able to print a copy if you wish. Your membership number, which was generated by our previous system, is shown on the card as well as an ID number generated by the new system. New members will only receive this new ID number.

Some terminology has changed from our previous membership system:

  • ‘Primary Member’ is now ‘Individual Member’
  • ‘Primary Family Member’ is now ‘Bundle Administrator’ and
  • ‘Family Member’ is now ‘Bundle Member’.

Edit your MG Car Club Profile

Click ‘Edit Profile’ and follow the steps below to get started:

  1. Click Privacy and adjust settings to your personal preferences – note that ‘Anybody’ does not apply to our settings – you can therefore either nominate for all MGCC Members to see the various details or nobody other than yourself
    • Please note that only MGCC members can access the member directory
  2. Check that your details are correct and complete. If not, please amend and update where necessary. You can also click on your bundle members’ name(s) to update their details
