Urgent Notice to All Club Secretaries

Please be aware that unless you have correctly completed and returned your club re-affiliation paperwork for 2016, your club will not be insured. We are unable to make any exceptions to this ruling as our underwriters will not accept claims made if the correct paperwork has not been submitted and received at our NSRA offices.

Please note that if you have already submitted your renewal paperwork, your club will be covered by our insurance, providing this is complete and correct. Any slight delay you may experience in receiving confirmation of your renewal is due to the Christmas / New Year break and the resulting volume of work we have to process.

To avoid unnecessary telephone calls and if you have yet to send in your renewal paperwork, please refer to the letter sent to you in October 2015, detailing the relevant forms for completion, the information required and the club renewal fee payable for 2016.

Thank you in advance for your co-operation and understanding during what is for us a very busy time of the year.

If you need another copy of the forms, all 2016 membership forms can be downloaded below:

Iain Root, Chief Executive Officer has a statement regarding the Club Re-affiliation and Insurance Renewal for 2017.  See below for the full statement.

I have been encouraged by the positive feedback we have received from numerous Club Secretaries about the new insurance cover being provided through Bluefin Sport and XL Catlin. Many clubs have been able to save in excess of £100 in terms of the cost of affiliation which is a direct consequence of the increase in the limits of the cover and the breadth of cover being provided. I am very grateful for those that have taken time to contact the Association and express their feelings and gratitude.

At the same time, however, a number of Club Secretaries have contacted the NSRA to raise their concern over the requirement to give the names of all members at their club, along with their contact details, and express their unhappiness that the National Governing Body is asking for this information and that it is a mandatory requirement of the affiliation process. The Association has asked clubs to provide the names of their members for many years with most clubs doing so. This year a new form has been introduced that provides space for the name of members, their telephone number and email address to be entered. The form identifies that the provision of the name is a mandatory requirement with the provision of other details being optional. This is denoted at the top left of the first page of the form where the asterisk in the heading of column one is explained. As explained in the Insurance Brochure the names provided will be managed in accordance with the Data Protection Act (2003) and will not be shared, divulged or sold to third parties. They will not be used by Bluefin Sport or XL Catlin to contact club members in an attempt to sell additional insurance or financial services.
