CIU Associate and Pass Card rules

It’s the time of year when it’s worth issuing a reminder on the rules for Associate and Pass Cards.
According to CIU rules, every club member should be issued with an Associate Card (see picture opposite) when they become a member of the club for the first time. This involves a one-off payment of £3.50 on the part
of the member. In addition, each year, when they renew their subscription to the club, members should be issued with a Pass Card. This involves a cost of £3.50 and is due to be paid each year.

It’s important that members asking for a Pass (or ‘year’) Card must already hold an Associate Card from the club they are asking to issue them with the Pass Card.

It is mandatory to purchase a Pass Card each year to accompany the Associate Card. The Associate and Pass Cards are not transferable from one club to another.
Both the Associate and Pass Cards should be obtained from the Club Secretary.
