Membership lapsed message from Scottish Athletics

Unread post by Brian R Smith »

Hi All,
I received an e-mail today saying my membership to Scottish Athletics has lapsed so can only assume my membership has run out at Fife AC.
I always get a reminder e-mail to let me know when my membership runs out but have not received one to date, so can someone advise what the policy is regarding renewals at this date as I was not sure if you had suspended memberships the same as the gym I am a member of has done and stopped taking payment for 3 Months, if this is the case do we still need to renew with Scottish athletics or will I be sent a renewal form to renew my Fife AC membership along with Scottish Athletics at the same time.
I don't want to loose my SA Number that I have had for years as I am getting too old to remember a new one lol.
Hope this finds everyone well in these difficult times and see my favorite race series has now also fallen to the covid 19 The Tour of Fife which I am gutted about but assume everyone else will be feeling the same :e: .
Will keep an eye out for a reply as I don't want to let thing slip too long, also don't have a problem with renewing now if need be as I just need the info for bank transfer etc with form.

Regards
Brian R Smith

Same problem.

I emailed the (Fife AC) membership email address a month ago and got no response.

Thanks :)

Hello,

I have just seen this. I am Club Secretary and was asked at the end of April to take over membership due to a secondment whilst the lockdown and other elements with Covid 19 were happening. I have been asked to process renewals and new members and liaise with Scottish Athletics until this period is over. I’m really sorry that you have not received any replies from Membership or renewal reminders and I have emailed our committee to try to find out why this is the case. I also have received no emails about membership since this time. I suspect a gremlin in the system. For the foreseeable future, please could all members who have any queries about membership or wish to renew with Fife AC, or join, please contact me directly at secretary@fifeac.org

I will also be asking that this message be posted on social media.

Many thanks and apologies,

Claire

Hello Again,

During the current crisis Fife AC would like to encourage our members to renew their membership as usual to support the Club and Scottish Athletics, as Mark Munro, the CEO of Scottish Athletics, recently explained. You can find his statement here: https://www.scottishathletics.org.uk/54015-2/ However we do understand that some of our members might be facing difficulties and so it is understandable that some might not be in a position to renew their membership right now. We will continue to send out membership renewal information but we know that some people might not be able to respond. In that case, we will be very happy to welcome members back once life gets back to something a little more normal. Please note that when a person renews several months later, Scottish Athletics will backdate the membership to the original date of the renewal.

If you’d like to renew with us or join, please find links below to our two forms.

New members - https://www.fifeac.org/files/documents/ ... p_Form.pdf

Existing members - https://www.fifeac.org/files/documents/ ... l_Form.pdf

You can either send a photo or pdf of your form to my email and make an online payment (if you don’t do online banking please send your cheque directly to our Treasurer).

Many thanks,

Claire

Many thanks :)

I was emailing membership@fifeac.org so maybe that email, if it still exists could get redirected / owned?
