I just renewed my membership as well. I hope you will not mind a little criticism. Believe me, it is only meant well. The join and renew buttons on the site are inconspicuous to say the least. When they were finally discovered, I went to the renew section and signed in using the information I had received by E-mail. Working through these forms I absolutely failed to find any way to upgrade my membership from individual to life. However, each time I tried, I got an E-mail thanking me for renewing, although I had not actually renewed. In the end, I had to go the new member joining screen and act like I was signing up for the first time. This worked. However, it also assigned me a new membership number. At this point, I apparently had 2 discrete membership numbers. Luckily, Liz is on the ball. She recognized the problem and deleted the original membership number. In other words, the system did work for me, but it sure was not easy or straightforward.
