In a change from previous years membership subscription and Public Liability Insurance will be dealt with and paid for separately.
This is due to a change in financial regulations that no longer allows the GCN to act as a collector and holder of monies for the Insurance Company. An explanatory letter from Access Insurance has been attached to this notice.
The two items will be dealt with as follows…
This will remain at £20 for the year 2017/2018. Clubs should go through the renewal process via the membership section. The only difference will be that the GCN cannot currently accept payment by PAYPAL. Payment can be by Bank Transfer or Cheque (details will be give when you renew).
For clubs already insured through the GCN, Access Insurance has been passed your contact details (as given on the club listing) and will contact you directly. Should these details have changed please notify myself at firstname.lastname@example.org Discount applies only to GCN member Clubs and the full quote has been set at £78.76 for the year 2017/2018.
For clubs not already insured through the GCN but who would like to join the insurance scheme, please contact John.Fitzpatrick@accessinsurance.co.uk and he will bring you into the scheme.
It is my belief that these changes will make for a smoother administrative process. Instead of waiting for Access to email documents to the GCN which are then emailed to the club, the Insurers will be sending them directly and receiving payment in the same way. Also the GCN will not have the burden of administrative costs and more importantly time lost.
Should you experience any difficulties or have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself at email@example.com
