I want to design a membership database for our club to replace excel.

My problem is how to design it so that we can report on the following;

  • Show new members in 2018
  • Show 2017 members who have still to renew
  • Show previous members who did not renew
  • Show 2017 members who did not renew


I think I could report on these, it I create a field for each year, but I don't think this is efficient


Also I'm uncertain as to how many tables I will need.

  • Membership types - Individual. family, couple, student, junior, etc
  • Customers - the person who pays the membership fee
  • Members - these are the members and their partner or family. If a customer has as a family membership, there could be 4 people in that family who are members
  • Join table; Customers and Membership types
  • Join table: Customer and Members


Is there anyone who can advise me?
