Members and Club Secretaries are advised that any passport image supplied for a membership that is over 5 years old will no longer be retained on file.
This means that any member who has provided an image that is now over five years will not be available for 2019 and the member will have to provide a new image.
This is due to new data protection guidelines since the introduction of General Data Protection Regulations which came into force earlier this year and this is expected to affect many members in 2019 when they go to renew their membership.
Members and club secretaries are encouraged to supply new passport images in the coming weeks to ensure there are no additional delays in 2019 due to no image being on file.
Please ensure that your image is in colour and that you follow these guidelines from the Department of Foreign Affairs:
