2017 Membership Renewal - New Procedure Renewal of Membership 2017/2018 Did you know that joining our club includes becoming a Member of British Gymnastics, the National Governing Body for Gymnastics in the UK? Until this year we have sent members’ details such as names, ages and addresses to British Gymnastics to allow them to activate personal member benefits for you, such as Insurance and discounts, and to send out your Membership pack. From October 2017, to comply with new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) we will no longer be able to pass on these personal details to British Gymnastics. We are therefore asking all members (or your parent/guardian if you are under 16 years old) to renew your British Gymnastics Membership directly through the British Gymnastics website. A new Membership process - here’s how it worksWe will still collect our Club Membership Administration Fee & Regional Affiliation, which helps to achieve our charitable objectives as well as contribute to the running costs of the club such as supporting our coaches and judges with their education and replacing equipment.After you have paid your club fee you will need to go to the British Gymnastics website to complete your Membership Renewal process and pay your British Gymnastics Membership Fee (which we used to collect with the club fee).This process creates your vital Insurance cover. Until that registration process is completed on the British Gymnastics website, you will not be Insured to attend our classes. The registration system on the British Gymnastics website is quick and easy to use by mobile phone, tablet, computer or laptop. British Gymnastics Website is not ready for you to complete your membership yet. We will advise when the page is open. British Gymnastics will activate Membership and Insurance cover immediately as well as sending your Membership confirmation and Membership benefits information by both post and email. British Gymnastics will notify us when you have completed your registration.We’ll give you more information to help you with this process before memberships are due in October. Thank you for your patience and co-operation with this change.
