I have enclosed an “Application For An S4C UEN (Uniform Entry Number) Must Be A Member Of An S4C Member Club” that I created with Stuart Lynn’s approval. Stuart had specific language he wanted inserted which I complied with and he was happy. The form now has been shared with a couple of other clubs, minus our information. I have this form as a Word.docx and pdf It can be given out at the meetings where the member can sign in person and date. It is NOT to go online and be sent into us pre-dated and signed. The S4C Delegate, S4C Interclub Chair or Club President MUST the ones submitting the information and completing the information under “Office Use Only.” The member is always invited to obtain their own UEN. This is only to assist them.
