I have received the renewal forms from BSAC HQ and will be at the clubhouse every Thursday to process these.

The chart below illustrates all possible fees. To find your fee, simply cross-reference your diving grade (as at renewal date) with your membership type. Each box details the fee due to BSAC along with the K&E fee and the total payable.

## Examples:

* If you are a BSAC Sports Diver and a Full Diving Member you will pay £45.50 BSAC fee and £110 K&E fee making a total of £155.50.
* If you are a Dive Leader and a Full Diving Member you will pay £45.50 BSAC fee and £90 K&E fee making a total of £135.50
* If you are an Advanced Diver and a Full Diving Member you will pay £40.50 BSAC fee and £90 K&E fee making a total of £130.50
* A Student or Youth member and a Full Diving Member you will pay £18 BSAC fee and £110 K&E fee making a total of £128.

Those who are abated to another member of the club will pay the lower BSAC rate, for example:

* If you are a BSAC Sports Diver and an Abated Member you will pay £30.50 BSAC fee and £110 K&E fee making a total of £140.50.

## Points to bear in mind

Check the renewal form to ensure that BSAC have the correct information about you. Make a note on the form of any changes in contact details or diving/instructor grades gained throughout the year.

If you have changed diving grade and it reduces the amount that you need to pay, I will need to see some kind of proof, such as qualification record or have verification from Chris Hunka as training Officer that you have attained that grade before I can complete the renewal.

The renewal forms have information printed on them about Direct Debit arrangements but these do not apply to us — Payment for renewals is as ever, by cheque or cash.

If you can’t come to the club and wish me to send you the forms please let me know. Similarly anyone who has any queries or is unsure whether they need to renew now or what they need to pay, can either catch me at the club or email me and I’ll let them know.
