Membership Renewal 2019-20

Posted by Alan Mawdsley on 28 December 2018

The Stragglers membership year runs from 1st April to 31st March and the annual subscription is charged to members accounts on 1st April.  Ahead of this we ask all members re-register on the ClubBuzz system each year: -

-          To ensure that our membership database is correct

-          So that we only charge the next year’s subscription to members who want to renew

-          To enable us to process England Athletics registrations in time to avoid a break in registration.

On 8th January 2019, you will receive an email request from ClubBuzz to re-register, please don’t ignore it! In the email there will be a link to re-register and, if you do not want to renew, a link to let you flag that your membership is not to be renewed. To re-register you have to confirm that the information in your profile is correct. The committee have agreed some changes that require you to indicate some additional preferences in your profile when you do this. The changes are: -

1.       Registration with England Athletics will become the default for all members unless you opt-out which you do by selecting “No” in the field England Athletics drop-down box. If you don’t opt-out, the England Athletics fee of £15 will be added to your account on 1st April 2019.

2.       As part of GDPR good practice, and in response to requests from some members, you can update your profile to show whether you want to receive StragMail, StragMag, and Team Captains’ emails about races (Surrey League, Green Belt, Welsh Castles etc). Unless yout say that you don’t want to receive them, then the default will be that you do. If you start by receiving them, you can change your selection at any time by updating your profile.

Once you have re-registered and updated your profile, you don’t have to do anything until the new membership year. The annual subscription will be charged to your account on 1st April 2019 and you will receive an e-statement on 15th April 2019 which includes payments options. It is very important that you pay promptly. Our Treasurer, who is a volunteer, is very busy with his own job and doesn’t have time to keep chasing people over late payments.

Our preference is that members pay by direct debit. This is the simplest and cheapest method for the club and ensures payments are made on time. To do this, login, go to My Account/Account Settings, and click on the blue “Edit Settings” button which allows you to set up a direct debit mandate. Should you wish, you can cancel the mandate at any time just by going to the same screens.

If you haven’t set up a direct debit mandate, the other payment options will be shown on your e-statement. One of these will be to pay via GoCardless however this is only a one-time payment and will not create a direct debit mandate that will be active for future payments.

We hope this is clear but if you have questions or comments, please email admin@stragglers.org or contact any member of the committee.
