Streamlining Procedures – Membership Cards and Weight Class Changes

As you may have noticed, we’ve been doing a lot of work behind the scenes to try to make things run more smoothly in Scottish Powerlifting, for example the new live membership list and the Scottish Powerlifting Members Only group on Facebook.

As part of these efforts, we’re making a couple of other little changes.

  1. Membership cards will no longer automatically be sent out when you apply for membership. Your membership number will be added to the list on the website and your card will be available to collect at any Scottish Powerlifting competition. If you need your membership card for a British Powerlifting Competition before the next Scottish Powerlifting competition, simply contact the membership secretary via the contact form on this website and it will be sent to you. This not only saves money but frees up some of the Membership Secretary’s time to allow them to process more memberships more quickly!
  2. There is now a form to make weight class changes on the website! Rather than messaging us via Facebook or the contact form, simply go in and fill out a few details before the deadline and your weight class will be changed. How cool is that? Don’t forget, the deadline is now two weeks before the competition, rather than 48 hours.

There will undoubtedly be more changes coming, but we hope that these prove helpful!
