This policy was first approved by the BAC committee during its meeting on 3-4-2018

Communication by email: Members are encouraged to agree to receive communications from the club electronically in order to minimise postage costs to the club. The membership renewal/application form includes a box to be ticked to indicate agreement to this. When the club receives a membership form with the box ticked but then subsequently receives a renewal form from the same member without the box being ticked, it will assume that is an oversight. If any member, having previously agreed to electronic communication, wishes to rescind that authorisation he/she will need to send a specific request to the club.
