It has taken the Membership Secretary, who has only recently been appointed to the position, a little while to get to grips with the system, check that direct payments had actually been made, have cheques cleared, etc.
This has proved to be very time consuming and coincided with end of school year activities and sporting events. The priority has been to process and record payments on the membership database so that Nationals entries could be checked and confirmed.
Consequently the manufacture and mailing of some 300 membership cards has been delayed. To ensure the safe delivery of membership cards, they will be taken to the Nationals for those people who will be attending. Other cards will be posted to clubs in due course.
