Dear ACS Members, sponsors, colleagues and friends,
In recent days the National Executive have been in discussion regarding the potential fallout to our members due to the Coronavirus.
We feel in these extraordinary and unprecedented Coronavirus Covid-19 times that many of our members are suffering both financially and emotionally and therefore the ACS would like to offer all financial members a free membership for the 2020/2021 financial year.
If a member is unfinancial they will have to pay a minimum of one year’s membership that is currently in arrears to be eligible to receive this offer.
Thankfully each Branch has agreed to bear the cost on behalf of its members. The Branches will also still pay the National ACS Capitation fees as well as the Clubhouse and Magazine levies so that Nationally the ACS, ACS HQ and AC Magazine can continue to operate.
I cannot thank the Branches enough for their support of this very important initiative.
There could well be some who feel they do not need this assistance as they have the capacity to pay their membership fee. If you are one of those member’s I say thank you for your support and generosity of spirit and ask you to contact your Branch treasurer to let them know that you are willing to pay your membership fee for 2020/2021 year as usual.
Unfortunately, we cannot extend this offer to new members, so they will be required to pay the current advertised membership fees. After all we are rewarding our current financial members for their continued loyalty and support.
Please remain assured that your Society is very mindful that there will be many who will be disadvantaged by the Coronavirus and we hope to assist by this initiative.
