URGENT MESSAGE FOR ALL ACPPLD MEMBERS
This is an urgent message for all ACPPLD members. As you should be aware the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25th May 2018 and this affects how the CSP and ACPPLD contact you. The CSP did email all members 3 times in April urging you to update your email contact preferences, however many people have not yet done this. We have realised last week that the result of this is that more than half of our members are now not receiving any messages and emails from us. There is no other way for us to contact you as we no longer have permission to do so.
