Confusing as it may be, joining the ICA does not immediately give access to the members-only area of this website, concertina.org. The membership database is quite separate from the website, and not all members want or need an account on the website.
To add to the confusion, we also have a Register for logging member’s concertinas, which we hope will be useful in cases of theft or other insurance claims.
Hence there are several uses of the word ‘register’ on this site that may be leading to confusion.
These are three separate things. If you wish to access the members-only items, you need to fulfil both membership and register separately on the website.
