The new Membership Secretary (Fides Desacada) and Assistant Membership Secretary (Roger Pimlott) have split the membership role as follows:

Fides ( will deal with membership related enquiries including broken membership, eligibility to grade for members, new dojo registration and any membership related requests by the NC/Bu/DRC.

Roger ( will be in charge of new membership, upgrading from temporary to full membership, issuing of ‘welcome pack’ (this includes the blue book) to new members and dojo renewals.

This is a new infrastructure on the Membership side and Fides and Roger have asked members to be patient with them while they get to grips with their respective responsibilities.
