End of an era for madrefs.co.uk
We can now confirm that the new madrefs.co.uk website will go live on 1st June.
Our current integrated website and appointments database, which has served us well, will be closed down by its owners at the end of May as they no longer wish to support it.
(However, you will not be able to login to the appointments database after 24th May.)
Partly as a consequence of this, and as you probably know, the Society is going to use the online system Who’s the Ref (WTR) for making appointments. WTR is now used by all but one of the referees’ societies in England and by many other sporting bodies in both the UK and overseas.
In due course the Society may well also make use of some of the other features offered by WTR.
During May members of the Society will receive emails inviting them to set their passwords on WTR and to begin using the new system.
The new website will potentially open up many opportunities to use technology to improve the Society’s online presence and to provide members with better online services. If you have any ideas for this please do not hesitate to let us know.
