I got one earlier and logged in, took a good hour before the password reset came through.

Don't think my local club has gotten their e-mail yet as it's not on my list of affiliate clubs.

Not a great deal of content on the events and training calendar yet, in fact there's ziltch!

Funnily enough I have just got the second email and reset my password. On signing in I can't find anything about clubs renewing or checking members status (I do the club renewals). Just checked my spam and bulk mail boxes and nothing aimed at commities is showing up. My club is not listed on the Southeast map but the screen tells me which club I am a member of - correctly and also that I am a member of the club in the next town 8 miles away - incorrectly

Glad I'm not the only one who is confused but it is early days yet.

John

I note what you say Andy. However, as a Country member I got the original email in September advising members that changes were afoot and new log in details will be sent to me. This hasn't happened and presumably, as you say in your post, my not being a club member I shan't be invited by email to renew unless I misunderstood the process. So what do I do next? Use the old dog-and-bone to do it or join the LMA?!! wink

Been on to the portal and checked my details - all OK. Very easy to use.

Did notice however, on the downloadable certificate, that we are to 'NOTITY' the BMFA of any incorrect details...|!!

Sack that proof reader.....

Logged on to the new portal - very nice, easy to use.

Unfortunately the portal club finder has lost all the clubs in Yorkshire!

Andy - could you look at what the portal says is within 50 miles of Leeds / Bradford, and compare it with the old club finder - the difference is in double figures...

Or are you expecting Yorkshire to declare independence and form it own YMFA laugh.

Steve.

I had the same problem - the geographic search seems to be missing a lot of clubs. I was able to find my other clubs by selecting "All Clubs" in the "within XX miles" drop-down.

Likewise. There is only one club in Cornwall ( slope soaring club near St Agnes), and its neither of mine.

I suspect that a lot of clubs haven't got around to setting themselves up on the system. Only one of my three is there.

I got on to the the system this afternoon (went to https://bmfa.azolve.com, entered the email address that the BMFA have for me, hit the lost password button, a while later I got a link to set my password and was in), looks pretty good. Should make things easy come December.

Nail hit firmly on the head there, clubs won't show until they add their geo location, the email they received pointed this out. We didn't want to add all the current data from the old club map as the data could do with a refresh. The clubs will start to appear as the locations are added.

Cheers

The funny thing is, for the club that I can see on the map, the old club finder has the right location whereas the location in GoMembership is off by about 1km .

You can find the clubs not on the map by going to the list.

When you put your club site co-ordinates the site applies an offset, mainly so thieves can't use this to visit your site and relieve the club of equipment kept on site.

If you have technical questions about using the system can you first of all refer to the documentation that Andy Simmons mentioned earlier in this thread. It's in the Documents section of your membership area - the answer you are looking for is possibly there! If not, then by all means ask Andy on here, but let's not drive the poor lad mad by making him answer the same half dozen basic questions, that are covered in the document, over and over again!

Thanks

I've logged in ok. Seems very modern and interesting. How do I put my "A" and "B" certs in, and my club instructor qualifications in?
Wouldn't mind doing an examiner course in the future. Not sure how it comes about...

Mine were pre-populated - check you were looking in the right place as there are two similar looking categories.

Examiners are nominated and appointed by clubs - if your committee feels it needs an additional examiner it applies to the scheme's area controller who will arrange for an area chief examiner to meet you to do an assessment. Assuming you're successful, the club then appoints you and renews the qualification each year while they are happy that they need you and that you're doing the job to their satisfaction.

Ditto, all details are there already. Seems easy to use.
