GDPR is coming. Are you ready?

The SD Members' Day is taking place on Sunday 20th May in Birmingham. One of the workshops we are holding is on the subject of GDPR.

With the implementation of GDPR a matter of days after the SD Members' Day, this session with Katie Hall of Gateley and Richard Irving of SD is a timely reminder of the key data protection recommendations of GDPR and their likely impact on membership organisations.

The session will give attendees the opportunity to ask questions specific to their own organisation and build an understanding of the implications of the regulations going forward. With tips on how best to communicate with members and templates for use in order to comply, this session will provide members with all they need before the 25th May enforcement date.

Have had different advice on this but I'm sure, during this seminar, someone said that data handling that formed part of the membership contract (e.g. sending newsletters, AGM/Election notifications, etc.) didn't need for permission to be granted anew. Have I understood that correctly?

Hi Nick
That's correct. If a member has signed up and is therefore expecting material associated with that membership then there is no need to obtain a new consent.
