National LDWA - Data Protection Policy
The Long Distance Walkers Association

Dear Members,

Re: Data Protection

Earlier this year the National LDWA instituted a new data protection policy with a user guide and briefing notes for officers (See National Website). Subsequently, there is now a mandatory requirement for ALL groups to have a Data Protection Officer on the committee to act as a focal point between National and the group.

Once again the task is not an onerous one, but one that we have to fill.  If anyone would like to put their name forward for the role, or would like more information on what the role entails, please get back to me, or pose your query to Christopher Hedley although there is a lot of information on the National Website.
