New rules to apply for QRCC regular membership |
Dear QRCC Members,
From 1 July 2015, a new procedure concerning financial membership has been established. The new procedure consists of two steps:
- Filling and lodging of the Membership Form (on paper or electronically);
- Payment of the membership fee according to an invoice, containing the amount and particulars of the required payment, as provided by the QRCC (for cash payments see information below).
We would like to draw your attention to the requirement that any electronic payments of membership fees may ONLY be done on the grounds of an invoice provided by the QRCC, and ONLY after the verification of an accepted Membership Form by the Executives of the QRCC.
When making a payment, please, indicate the invoice number and your surname. This will make it possible for us to track your payment in the payment database. In the circumstances where the identification of a payer and transaction is not possible, such payment will not be deemed valid until clarification of all relevant details.
Cash membership fee payments may ONLY be done in the QRCC and ONLY when applied in person, providing all the details are provided correctly and fully. ONLY Executive Committee Members of the QRCC can accept payments. A receipt will be issued as a prove of payment. We would like to ask you to give due attention to this matter and in the absence of such receipt request it from the person accepting your form.
We would like to also inform you, that in accordance to the QRCC rules, annual payments of the financial membership fees should be done within 2 months of the new financial year. That is, from 1 July to 31 August each year.
New member fee payments may be done at any time and is valid for the subsequent financial year.
Please keep in mind that due to this year's bonus scheme introduced for members who joined the Russian Centre and paid their membership fees during the last three months of the previous financial year (i.e. from 1 April to 30 June 2015), the financial membership for such new members is valid until the following financial year - 30 June 2016.
