Yes there are 2 stages: Renewal & Payment (Both steps have to be done before we can process your application).
Working With Children
Every state in Australia has the same legislation - in order to run our programs of which many involve children and being an aquatic environment, the supervision ratio is increased. All of the tasks are classed as working with children and consequently anybody over the age of eighteen is required to hold a 'Working With Children' check.
We have to keep a list of all people involved and their 'Working With Children Check' registrations. In order for this to happen, you all need to be registered members of the club. Consequently all members of Surf Life Saving Australia need to be registered.
Also by being registered members you and the club are covered for Workcare and insurances. Our record of WWCC is kept current on the receipt of a letter from the Department of Justice. So if the club is not listed or if the address is wrong on your application, we do not receive that letter.
If you have forgotten your user name, contact me and I can send you your username and details to retrieve your password. When renewing your password use the ‘sms’ option, MEMBERS AREA will match your name, date of birth and mobile number and send you a temporary password which will be one of case sensitive letters, numbers and punctuations. Once you have it, log in and go to ‘Personal Details’ then ‘Change Password’ and make an easier password. Once you have this, please write your username and the password in a document and save it as something like lifesaving membership.
If any time during the year any of your details change, you can log in to the Member Portal and then select MEMBERS AREA and update your details so they stay current and you will receive any communications from the club.
