Dear Members,
The club committee has reviewed the budget for incomes and outgoings 2019 and we have determined that the club will be able to hold the annual membership fee at €60 for the coming year.
You will be able to complete your annual membership 2019 from 1st December 2018 onwards and the due date for annual membership payment will be 1st January 2019. As per the club constitution you will have 2 months to complete your annual subscription renewal.

Canoeing Ireland Membership & Club Insurance.
The committee recently undertook a full review of the clubs insurance and also reviewed the club’s affiliation with Canoeing Ireland (CI) .
We met earlier in 2018 with Canoeing Ireland officers and through that medium we established that Kayaking clubs which hold affiliation with CI and where all the Club members are also members of CI. Can qualify for insurance cover which will comprehensively cover the kayaking activities of the club.
We launched a thorough investigation into the insurance cover that CI. can provide using a sub-committee composed of 3 club members with experience in insurance / CI / Club set-up. This concluded in October and we were satisfied that the CI insurance route should be the one which we will run with in future.
We have arranged with our current insurance broker to pay for 6 months cover through to end April 2019 and our intention is that we will switch our cover during April 2019 to CI.
So effect this new CI Insurance it is therefore imperative that all ECSKC club Members are also registered members of CI and also recognised within the CI database as a member of ECSKC.
To this end your annual membership subscription to ECSKC for 2019 will also include the €30 cost of CI Membership. You will be auto-enrolled with CI. in April 2019 and we will shortly be seeking your permission in line with GDPR to share some limited personal data with CI.
Club members who already carry CI membership in 2018 will have that membership migrated to the clubs auto-enroll form April 2019. There will be some overlap but as the club’s membership fee is an all-in figure I think you can see that you will be benefitting from this for 2019.
For some club members they may want to hold CI membership or other National Governing body (eg. BCU/CANI) independently.
