No. To be a member of the NSRA you have to take out individual membership, either Annual or Associate.
By affiliating to the NSRA, your club has insurance for both liability and equipment owned by the club.
However, any personal equipment owned by members is not covered by club insurance.
By taking out individual membership, not only is your shooting equipment covered (including theft from vehicles), but there are other benefits such as legal costs and personal accident insurance.
In addition, you have access to a wide range of NSRA competitions and other benefits which are open to members only.
Clubs, Counties and Other Shooting organisations as well as individual members will be able to use the system as a quicker and easier way to renew, manage their own data and allowing new Members to join. The vast majority of people these days are familiar with online providers eg insurance companies, motoring organisations, retailers etc.
This does not increase the cost of your membership. The idea is to bring the organisation into the 21st century and make the job of renewing as easy and simple as possible.
No, this is the system we have chosen to streamline the organisation and for it to deliver benefits to everybody you will need to register which is quick and easy however if you do not have internet access you will be able to ask NSRA Membership to help you add data to the system and take payments over the phone. Please note during the early phase of implementation the Membership Team will be busy so we would ask for your understanding and patience.
No, the Club Secretary is our point of contact. We want to be able to use the system to communicate with our members as we all know good communication is vital and this is what you have been telling us in the surveys. We would love to have Club members on the system to receive emails but this would be only available to people who wish to receive information from us – each member can manage their opt in preferences in line with GDPR.
There is no requirement that you must be affiliated or a member of the NSRA, we are working hard to communicate with our membership, provide most comprehensive insurance, a great magazine and a new Rewards Scheme which will save you money. We sincerely hope that all small-bore, air and crossbow target shooters in the UK will be behind the NSRA.
Only if the appropriate opt-in has been ticked. One of the major criticisms of the NSRA was lack of communication. We will not share your data with third parties but it will be used to improve the quality of communication you can expect from us. Under GDPR the NSRA is allowed to send communications relating to membership services.
There is a resource centre on the system with videos to help if you get stuck and we are always at the end of the phone and happy to help – we do ask for your patience in the early phase of transition. If you are on Facebook and have a simple question then you may find someone in the NSRA community can help.
The biggest benefit is that you will be able to manage your own records and check that the data the NSRA holds is up to date. You will be able to see your coaching qualifications and records of other qualifications (all to be named “credentials” in the future. It will make things easier, quicker and simpler for everyone, in short vastly improve your membership experience and will allow extra money to be re-invested into other NSRA projects.
No, GoMembership only provide the digital platform.
This is not mandatory but it is a responsible element to include as injuries may occur at any sporting event. You do not need to complete this information now but if you compete in NSRA events at Bisley or Scotland you will be asked to provide these data.
They are currently shown as credentials and qualifications but we are in the process of changing this to just credentials to simplify things.
Yes, direct debit information has not been transferred to the new system so a new DD will need to be set up and best to cancel the old one for peace of mind, however if you do not cancel your DD this should be spotted by NSRA Memebrship.
There is likely to be a short delay between renewing your NSRA Membership and being able to logon to NSRA Rewards.
