Insurance?

Post by Graham M » Fri 07 Apr 2006 09:51

With Lynne Bailey's resignation, can anybody give some guidance as to how one now deals with updates/changes to a club's list of insured members and how one goes about getting as yet undelivered cards?

Suggest the simplest thing is to wait until Lynne's replacement as BCA Membership/Admin is in post and, if you still don't have the information you want, contact the new person for advice.

I know Lynne is working flat out to try to deal with an enormous workload so you may have received the stuff you require since you posted your message or it may be due very shortly.

Graham - sorry for the delay in replying - too busy posting in 'the other place' (inter alia)!

Basically, keep sending information in in the normal way and we will get to it in due course. We have had a good response to the advert for a new administrator and so I don't think it will be long before someone is in post.

If you have any urgent problems, please contact me directly - you know where I am.

I was somewhat surprised to read, above, that Lynne Bailey had resigned. As a Direct Individual Member, I was getting a bit concerned that, although I'd renewed my membership of the BCA in early January, I've still not received my membersship card. I did email Lynne on the matter, some weeks ago, and received a rather tart message in return. Does anyone know when this problem is likely to be resolved?

I spoke to Lynne last night. I understand that the remaining DIM cards should be in the post by the end of this week.

cave insurance

I didnt know Lynne had resigned. I'm sorry about that, but as caving secretary of cave and crag we have still not recieved any BCA insurance cards.
So if no insurance cards are available, why not issue some kind of old fashioned permit for each caving club?
Plus, with new members in our club wanting to join BCA, Who do we contact now?

Things are moving forward despite Lynn's resignation. I received my own DIM card a couple of weeks ago after a call from the Insurance Manager's (Nick's) secretary.

The contact details have not changed but now go to Nick and/or his secretary. i.e. BCA Membership c/o the Old Methodist Chapel, Great Hucklow, BUXTON, SK17 8RG or email membership[at]british-caving.org.uk if you prefer.

At the last council meeting Nick said he would do exactly this for any club that asked for it.

Hope that helps a little.

I can confirm what Cookie has said. My Club is still waiting for cards but has now received its insurance certificate.

All clubs who have paid are on record so, if you need confirmation of payment or your club needs a certificate to prove to a landowner, etc. that you are insured, email either:
insurance [at] british-caving.org.uk or membership [at] etc.
and you will get a response.

I've also now received my own DIM cards, sent mid-June.
