Who ceased CTC membership after charity conversion, etc. ?

Postby ukdodger » 17 Mar 2017, 5:46pm

How many of us didnt renew membership because of the change from club to charity? I didnt intend to but then I got to wondering if you have to be a member to partake of the CTC tours which might change my mind.

Me for one, I thought it quite unconstitutional. That should have been put to the members. Along with the name change as well

Hi Malc. If I can go on tours without membership I wont either.

This would a more useful post if it had a poll attached .... just a thought .... I renewed ... and voted out ..... a combined poll ..... :)

I carried on being a member after the conversion to a charity. The name change, along with a realisation of the focus of the club and the way it was being run.
I had half an inkling of joining again when I qualified for aged membership. Then the pass mat saga doesn't win me over, BBR revival here in Scotland looked to me like a sham and I suspect ambiguously reported. Realised I could have had unwaged before and didn't make use of it. I've had 2 guest rides upto now but to be honest the people I ride with don't give a toss if I'm a member or not. We've never ever run that formally. KM Rally coming up, I'll probably turn up on a few rides, will I need membership for that?
Apart from local rides it just doesn't seem like a club for me anymore but I've looked very hard elsewhere and there certainly isn't another one fitting the bill either.
Whatever I am, wherever I am, this is me. This is my life RIP Hannah Hauxwell

Have to agree about there isnt anything else to choose from. Signing up for tours they do ask for a members number but dont state it's a requirement..

Pleased to see the title return. The edited version was completely different to the original and would make you wonder what's going on.

I did as I did not feel happy about supporting a chief executives salary. Just as I like to support small charities rather than major ones.
And don't get me started on Comic Relief , CIN etc.

Yep - renewed in July 15 only so I could vote at the CTC Heart of England dissolution EGM in September 15 and then ceased CTC membership (with a cash refund of the remaining term value) in October 15.

If you don't like the re-branding of this thread you can change it back, at least for your own posts :wink:

I changed the title to give some reasonable indication of the content.

This helps users to decide whether to go further.

The first attempt focused on your second question. I corrected it to focus on the first.
