Monthly Fees Clarification

Thank you for those members who have been very proactive in returning the required monthly standing order mandates, all those received upto Wednesday 19th February have been actioned and forwarded to your Bank for setting up, We would request that you individually check your accounts from 1st March onwards to ensure everything is as it should be.

Please can we ask that anyone who is still to fill in a mandate do speak to Andrew Maloney to get a new form to start from 1st April 2014.

Clarity around the Swimming Monthly Fees

– Per the constitution of Kingston Amateur Swimming Club (aka Kingston ASC) :

Paragraph C3.4 All members joining the club shall be deemed to accept the terms of this Constitution, the Club Bye-Laws and any Regulations from time to time adopted by the Club.

– Under the terms of Membership within the Club’s Constitution:

– Paragraph C3.2 Membership and Entrance Fees shall be as agreed at each AGM by a majority vote

Therefore after previous consultation to our members in 2013 and a trial introduction of monthly fees from March to June 2013 it was proposed on Friday 31st January 2014 at the Club’s AGM, to move forward with the introduction of a 12 monthly standing order payment for collection of entrance fees for every Swimming member of the Club, running from 1st March 2014 to 1st February 2015.

Any Swimmer who at the time of introduction swimming a minimum of 2 nights per week would pay £20 per month and likewise any Swimmer who was swimming 3 times per week would pay £30 per month.

This would mean a Swimmer who was swimming twice a week would pay £240 over 12 months and a Swimmer who was swimming three times a week would pay £360 over 12 months.

The calculation of these payments was made clear at the AGM on Friday 31st January 2014 to cover all swimmers over TERM TIME ONLY.(Please see attachment for these dates)

Swimming over the summer months would be at request and at a seperate nominal nightly payment should a swimmer wish to partake, these payments would be made known to all members before the commencement of the Summer months.

This motion was accepted at the AGM and passed by majority vote on Friday 31st January 2014.
