Subud Australia Membership Cards
Following Ibu Rahayu’s comments at the 2013 Indonesian Congress, an initiative has been underway to reinstitute membership cards in Australia. In so doing, the National Committee is seeking to follow Bapak’s original guidelines, as closely as possible. The initiative has also brought into focus our obligations under the Subud Australia Constitution and Regulations. In particular, the requirement to hold a list of member’s names who belong to “The Spiritual Association of Subud in Australia.”
As you are aware, membership cards have not been produced in Australia for several decades. This, combined with the fact that many groups do not maintain up-to-date membership registers, makes the task at hand even more challenging!
The good news is that the National Council (at this year’s mid-year meeting) approved the rollout of “virtual” membership cards – an eCard which is held on a mobile phone. eCards have many advantages over physical cards including increased functionality (e.g. buttons for push notifications and quick navigation to Subud URL’s, and a scannable bar code which may be utilized for Congress admin./security). Costing only 20 cents per card to produce, it is not only the most economical alternative, it is also the most environmentally friendly.
Steps to download your eCard:
Search for the “eCredsolutions.com” using your browser on your phone.
(Go to “Get eCred” or at the bottom of the page there are 2 buttons to select “App Store” or “Google Play”)
- Download the app by choosing one of these buttons. (Depending on your type of phone)
