POA MEMBERSHIP SUBSCRIPTION SCOTLAND

 Members in Scotland will be aware that they currently pay an additional monthly membership subscription to cover the additional cost of the insurance backed legal scheme operated in Scotland. As notified to the membership by POA Circular 31/2018 the current insurance backed legal scheme contract terminated on 31st March 2018 and has not be renewed.

In recognition of the fact that the new legal provision for members in Scotland is considerably more cost effective to the union, the National Executive Committee have determined this saving must be passed on to the membership and thus reflected in their POA subscriptions.

Therefore, I am pleased to advise all members in Scotland that with effect from 1st April 2018 membership subscription in Scotland will be reduced from £20.00 to £16.14 per month, this represents an annual saving to members in Scotland of £46.32 per annum.

As members will be aware, POA subscriptions are collected one month in arrears and therefore this reduction in subscriptions will be applied from subscriptions collected from 1st May 2018 onwards.

Your sincerely
