Membership fees Amnesty

CAcert Board has just approved the Membership Fees Amnesty. We are accepting any late payments for the year of 2007, which is due July 1st, as redemption of any previous debts and then returning the member to financial good standing with the association. The deadline for such payments is set to November 13th 2007.

This is a chance for users that forgot to pay the membership fees for some time, but are still interested in participating in CAcert Incorporated.

Please email me at so we can arrange for the payment.

Members that were accepted after July 1st and did not pay yet should email me for their first payment.

Kind Regards,
