Sam, I think the problem stretches back further than a few months. It's been an issue for at least 18 months

Fair enough- having just come in on it recently I haven't been sure of the exact timescale. Either way, actions are being taken to rectify it in the near future. We're hopeful memberships will begin to be processed in the coming weeks now that the technical issues are in the process of being resolved.

What's all this bi-annual membership renewal stuff then, does it mean membership costs will rise to 20 nicker per annum?

From what I understand regarding the membership, they are setting up a new system that is going to renew all members at the same time (once a year). So at the moment any member that was due for renewal have automatically had their membership renewed even if they have not paid.
They are hoping that when their new Web Site is up and running and better communication with members is established, that members who were not going to renew will have second thoughts and keep their membership's going.
I am sure if any board member think my statement is wrong, they will correct what I have stated

You are correct in that they are doing them in two batches, April and November depending on the nearest date to present membership.
They are still twelve month memberships though.

Thanks Sam and Ballboy for clarifying.

Folks, I do look in when I can but will admit it's not as often at the moment.

This afternoon, I and few others are getting together with a ton of paperwork, envelopes and cards and 'blitzing' EVERYTHING. This should bring us bang up to date, though I expect there may be a few things we miss. We're basically looking at ALL the members we have, or have ever had - close to 2000 people - and actioning each accordingly.

The idea is that by having the membership done just twice a year, we can then spend time doing other things we want to do. There hasn't been a meeting we've had in the last 8 months where membership hasn't been the top priority. That's wrong.

Next on the agenda will be the website. It is in BAD need of upgrading and making more user-friendly so we can actually administer it easier. I have a friend/former colleague of mine working on this. Other than putting out Comms (because it works) you won't see any changes taking place. We're looking to get it hosted somewhere else because I just had it confirmed today that the domain name is not owned by us and this is a concern. I'm meeting with someone next week.

Once we can sort out these issues, we can start 'getting on' with other things we should be dealing with.

This is of course taking longer than we'd ideally have liked. Please bear with us. By the time the new season starts we should be right about where we want to be...hopefully with some new members as well Smile

Tony.
