SSA Questions and Answers
An SSA Q&A following questions from members.
SSA have been flooded with enquiries, below should help to answer most of the frequently asked questions:
Q - I'm an Amber Member and pay monthly - do I need to renew?
A - No, you will be automatically renewed every season, however if you have any free Junior Members connected to your Amber Membership once they reach the age of 16 they will need to buy a new individual membership
Q - I pay annually can I continue to do that?
A - Yes of course, however it would be appreciated if you could consider paying monthly as that way you never need to renew. Also, SSA is ran by volunteers most of whom also work day jobs so paying monthly lessens the administration for SSA. Just set up a standing order online to pay SSA as below:
NAME OF ACCOUNT: Stags Supporters Association
SORT CODE: 30-95-43
ACCOUNT NUMBER: 20101868
Then email us as firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know you have joined, or fill in the attached online on the Join SSA page.
Q. What is Life Amber Membership and how much is it?
A. SSA were approached by a Stags fan who explained they loved our work however would never get round to setting up a standing order. They wanted to donate a substantial one off fee to SSA for ease and to make themselves a member for life. SSA are also aware that some fans of other clubs had issues with their owners but not with their teams fan clubs/supporters association and wanted to donate funds to organisations like SSA and not directly to their football clubs. SSA are also aware that some supporters clubs have had enquiries from individual fans nearing the end of life that wanted to gift some finance to their favourite clubs supporters club. Therefore SSA created a Life Amber Membership category so those wanting to gift a one off sum to SSA for whatever reason to become a member for life could do so. Amber Life Members automatically recieve their new membership cards every season for life. There is no set fee for Life Amber Membership this is a personal decision and all reasonable offers will be considered by the SSA Committee. There are no refunds available once an offer has been accepted and paid and it would be fair to say it is highly likely offers in excess of £1000 would be accepted.
