– a lot of decision-making is delegated to the “management support team” i.e the people who do the actual work

– that several of the proposition has proven to be impractical, like returning account balances to zero when people leave

– “administrative fees” have never worked, we end up billing inactive accounts

– clause 18, is bizarre, I would imagine the intent is to ask people not to pretend to represent BrisLETS in public forums as it is, it attempts to control activities that BrisLETS has no control over.

Learn how to set up a membership area on your website using built-in features of WordPress in this nifty step-by-step tutorial!
Let’s say that you (or your client) want to set up a membership area on a WordPress site with little to no money to spend on web development (sounds familiar?)
Whenever I hear someone mention that they want to set up a members-only area on their site (it happens a lot when you mingle with businesses who want to go ‘fully digital’, trust me!), the first thing I want to do is find out what they need and want to achieve.

  • appoint a member to be in charge of receiving and dealing with complaints
  • set up a system to record, track and monitor complaints

You should also consider adopting a grievance procedure. If you do not have a grievance procedure, the OFT has a draft example which you can use.
