Manually Renew Membership

If you are a current yearly member (2021 member), you will need to re-initiate a new membership. Memberships are not in the system yet (except lifetime members), so please purchase a new membership, as described above. The instructions below (in this section) are not relevant at this time.

Go to the Membership Form, select “Renew or Change a Membership,” then follow the instructions to log into the Zimfest Registration & Membership Manager. (Or click this link to go there directly, then log in.)

Renew or change a membership

From the Memberships area of the Registration & Membership Manager, you can:
