Members and Club Secretaries are being reminded of the process for applying for a change of grade in any discipline.
The Club Secretary must first apply to their respective region, on behalf of the member, seeking approval for the proposed change in the member’s grade.
When the region has approved the change, they will notify National Office of the approval being granted. Please note, however, that the change of grade is not implemented automatically.
Once approval has been sanctioned by the Region, you must then apply to National Office for the change to the member’s grades to be implemented.
Please note the following:
- If renewing the individual’s membership and want the member’s grades to be changed – you must include a note about this and state the member’s new grades on the form (either online or postal).
- If the member’s card has already been issued for the current year, you must apply via the online shop which is available – www.airc.ie/shop.
The member may only compete at the grades indicated on their membership card at any time.
Any approval from the region is only valid for 12 months and must be implemented within that timeframe.
