Trips and Events – Life Members are NOT members of the Area Clubs as these are financed directly from the subscriptions of serving members. Many of the current trips and events are arranged by Area Clubs who have varying policies on Life Member participation, generally there isa higher scale of contribution for retirees and other restrictions can apply.
Experience indicates that the longer members have been retired their involvement with Area Clubs becomes more distant. Generally the circulation is via the internal communication system and Life Members tend to find out from those still serving, but given the turnover of personnel this contact, in the majority of instances, falls off with time.
An expanding area of the membership services role will be to arrange Events & Trips on a South Yorkshire basis with circulation to serving and retired members alike.
