OGAE International began issuing membership cards on behalf of the various OGAE National Clubs some 10 years ago. In 2018 the Network decided to adopt a new electronic card system which is being rolled during 2019.
We are delighted to partner with Cardskipper to provide members with the new electronic cards.
The old plastic membership cards are no longer valid. Instead, current National Club members will receive an electronic membership card that can be stored and displayed on a smartphone through the Cardskipper app. Those without a smartphone will be able to load the card on a computer and will then be able to print the required document.
Individuals are free to join as many OGAE national clubs as they like, but must identify a primary membership club. Under normal circumstances, an individual’s primary club will be either that of their nationality or their place of residence. An OGAE International membership card will only be issued through a member’s primary national club. Individuals may not have more than one OGAE International membership card.
