Joining Message means joining a community. So how do we stay in touch?

We sometimes contact members by PHONE, and if you give us explicit permission via the tick box at the bottom of this form, we will add you to your local WhatsApp group if one exists in your area (pilot program only).

Your ADDRESS is used to send our quarterly magazine, and to assign you to one of our local administrative areas, to be in contact with members near you.

EMAIL is a required field; it is the way we store your membership information in our database. We use email for alerts and announcements, including those that we are legally obligated to deliver as a French Association Loi 1901. It is not visible to members on your profile page

Phone number

Please provide a phone number. To enable contact between members your phone number appears on your member profile unless you indicate on your profile that it should not. We will not add you to a WhatsApp group without your explicit permission (see below), and we won't spam you with texts.

Mailing address is a required field. Your street address will not be visible on your member profile. Members may be able to search for other members based on post code or name of town or arrondissement. Only volunteers who have signed a confidentiality statement can view your complete street address.

Email and your website account

You will access our members-only website to post or browse in our forums, the classifieds, check for events and keep your profile and contact information up to date.
