To add a new member Category got to
Members - Select Boxes - Member Categories
Go to “New”
Enter the Member Category (not too long) and the member category description.
After saving the new member category, edit the record to add more details,
eg. this member type offers 3 months of membership, so change the expiry period to 3 months, or whether this category is included in the new member signup form (set Exclude = 'No'). Important! Leave return period = 0, unless you want different member types to have different loan periods.
