In 2015 we implemented a system called WebCollect which is an internet based membership system. This was originally developed in 2010 for sailing clubs, but is now used extensively by sporting clubs, charities and professional bodies across the UK to manage their membership records and subscriptions.
The main benefit for the Club is that it will considerably reduce the administration overhead by enabling new membership applications and membership renewals to be performed on-line by members in much the same way as they would purchase products from on-line retailers such as Amazon. The system also allows members to update their details e.g. address, contact numbers etc. on-line, and will delivers cost savings to the Club by reducing the amount of paperwork and postage incurred every year at renewal time. The system can also be used to collect booking fees for Training Courses and Social Events. Note that we use WebCollect to book places on events that are 'free'.
Thinking of joining us? We suggest you make a visit to the Sailing Club; have a chat and a look around. See our 'Sailing Programme' for opening times. Contact our Membership Secretary - Ruth Cross, if you have a query.
