Transferring AR Membership
Providing that the annual subscription renewal/new membership subscription payment has been made for the current subscription year, individual Members who leave one company and join another (AR eligible) company may transfer their membership. Members wishing to transfer their membership to a company new to AR would be required to gain a Seconder (must be a current AR Board Member – a list of whom may be found on the AR website). If the member is part of a Gold Membership package, the membership renewal rate becomes applicable.
Accessible Retail has been formed as a company limited by guarantee. The Directors are the current Board members. Each AR member will be one of the members or “guarantors” of the Company. As a member you will be potentially liable to make a maximum contribution of £1 (one pound) should the company become insolvent. I acknowledge that as a member of the Company I may incur liability to contribute to the assets of the Company in the event of its being wound up but that the amount which I may be required to contribute shall not exceed £1.
