UPDATE March 2021.
Online Membership Disabled.
Recently we have experienced Memberships being purchased and refunds requested after we belive card was delivered. No correspondence was received by club that card was not received. We asked if you did not receive card to let us know and we would send duplicate.
For 20 years we have sent membership cards by regular mail and had no issue. As regular mail does not have tracking PayPal will issue refund to purchaser if they say they never received card even if we offer to replace. Regular mail was used to keep costs and workload down for our volunteers.
Therefore the club has stopped the sale of memberships online for the foreseable future.
The sale of Members cards overseas is small, it operates as a service to past members or those wishing to support the club. Due to changes to US banking laws, the NYC had to close its US Bank Account. The NYC is not registered as a non-profit or business outside of Niue. The original NYC US bank account was set up in 1999 well before 9/11. It purpose was to accept US currency without incurring heavy exchange and bank fees.
To be compliant, the NYC has approved Kevin and Carrie to sell NYC Memberships, Burgees and Flags outside of Niue as part of their US business. One difference you will see is that items now incur sales tax. If you have any questions please ask via the HelpDesk. Your purchases are handled in secure manner with NYC site having encryption. We have never released our members information or sales data to any other person.
