To avoid wasting plastic, we are switching to digital COC membership cards. 🍀 For this we are using Ledenpas.nl from Mediapoint B.V. in Heerhugowaard. Mediapoint has been printing and shipping our membership cards for years. With this company we have a processing agreement in accordance with the General Data Processing Regulation. With the digital passes we save the environment and also save on printing and postage costs. We can spend that money on our activities.

No app required

You do not need an app for the digital membership card. In fact, the pass is a web page containing the same information as on the plastic COC membership card: your name, your member number with barcode, which regional COC you are a member of and until when the membership card is valid. So you need a phone with a web browser and a working Internet connection.

Your digital membership card is already waiting for you. All you have to do is pick it up and activate it. You do this on your phone.

  • Step 1: Register using this link in your smartphone's web browser.
    Note: Use the mail address by which you are known to us in membership records. That is the mail address on which you received this email. If you enter a different mail address, you will not receive the email at step 2.

  • Step 2: You will receive an email with a link to a web page. Open that link, choose your password and activate your pass.

  • Step 3: With your email address and chosen password, your pass is now visible.

  • Step 4: Add the COC digital membership card to your phone's home screen.
    • Android (Chrome): In the upper right corner, click on the three-dot menu and then "Add to home screen.
    • iPhone (Safari): Click on 'the sharing icon' at the bottom, then choose 'Put on home screen'.

This puts the digital membership card on your phone and you always have it handy.

Your COC membership card is needed at member meetings, free or discounted admission to COC activities. Some regional COCs give discounts on drinks. They scan the bar code to do so. Some COCs also have agreements with businesses in their region about discounts for COC members. Check with your regional association.

Have fun with the COC digital membership card!

P.S. We understand that not all members have a smartphone or are equally adept at this. That is no problem at all. They can still get a plastic pass by sending an email to the membership administration stating their membership number. The membership card will then be sent by mail within 10 days.
