MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL 2019

The renewal process for 2019 is already underway. If you have not received a renewal email the process is outlined in the paragraphs below.

If you have forgotten your log-in password use the 'forgotten password ' button on the log-in page to be sent a new one.

Firstly, I hope you have enjoyed your year at Upper Thames, but if for some reason you do not intend to renew this year please tell me as it will avoid me chasing you for your renewal application!For the remainder it's renewal time. Please read this carefully because it will remind you of the process to follow to ensure it goes smoothly. This is in 2 stages - Stage 1 confirms your membership and berthing requirements and Stage 2 is the paying of the invoice which will be sent electronically to you. Please carry out Stage 1 as soon as you can in December. You will then need to pay the invoice which is due on January 1st.

PROCEDURE TO RE-JOIN

Stage 1 (Confirming renewal)

Please login to the Members' Area of the club website (www.utsc.org.uk). If you have forgotten your password, then please click on the forgotten password link - this will send a new password to your email address.

Click on 'renew' in the right-hand side menu

Then in the Renew section:

Please check the 2019 membership type and fees are correct. If not contact me at memberships@utsc.org.uk

Lead Membership responsibility

If your membership category covers more than one person, the Lead Member will complete the renewal process on behalf of each person in the membership category. Please indicate your agreement by ticking the first box on the renewal page.

Use of Personal Data

The Club has a Data Privacy Policy which can be found on the club website. Your data will be stored and used in accordance with this policy. The UTSC policy requires your active agreement to use your data for 2 items on each renewal: firstly, the online Members Directory together with the Club Handbook; secondly the Use of Images. Please indicate your consent by ticking the boxes on the renewal page. If you do not wish to sign up to either of these agreements, please contact me directly to discuss how we can proceed.

Select 'Renew this membership and pay now' in the black box.

If you have a current berth and wish to renew, then check boat and berthing are correct, then tick 'renew this mooring'. Note that berth details have been changed this year to either inside (for winter or all year internal storage) or outside (for all other berths). This allows the Harbour Master to allocate berth locations more easily when necessary.

Click on 'Renew Selected' in the red box.

Confirm details are correct and then click on 'confirm choices'.

You are now renewing your membership and by doing so you are agreeing to pay the associated fees.

An invoice will be displayed on screen - please pay by January 1st or earlier if you wish. You will receive an email on my behalf thanking you for renewing. You will also be emailed a further copy of the invoice as a reminder.

You may now log out.

Reminder: You can see all your invoices in your members' area.

Stage 2 (Payment of invoice)

After confirming your renewal you can then pay electronically from your bank to the Club's bank account (details on the invoice), putting the invoice number and your name in the reference field. If paying electronically is not possible then please forward a cheque to me at the club made payable to Upper Thames Sailing Club (UTSC will not be enough). The invoice gives an option to pay online but we have chosen not to use this because of its cost - so please ignore this.

Please do not send a cheque to the club without completing the above process.

The payment of the invoice needs to be received by January 31st to avoid the late payment fee. We are introducing a sliding scale for the late payment fee for 2019, based on rounding your invoice to the nearest £100 and then charging £20 per £100 of the rounded figure. (eg invoiced fee of between £51 - £149 results in a late fee of £20, invoiced fee of £150 -£249 results in a late fee of £40 etc, up to a maximum of £80).

If for any reason you are unable to login to the website members' area, please let me know and we will find an appropriate process for you.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact:

Chris Chacksfield memberships@utsc.org.uk or 01628 528334 or 07941 602861

John Dighton information@utsc.org.uk if it's a technical question.

Many thanks,

Chris Chacksfield

Membership Secretary
