How do I register as a member of the Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs?
There is no registration for membership, each club is run autonomously and by their members for the benefit of their members. At the moment the only registration is for Breakfast Clubs, not their members. We take members' security seriously, so do not hold any details for members then they cannot be compromised or gained access to by any third party.
Can I use the Original Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs Logo/Trademark?
Since the Logo is owned by the Official and Original Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs (afvbc.com), it can be used for none commercial use such as wreaths etc, to use the logo all that is needed, AFVBCs is the register of your Breakfast Club. We have launched the website shop where members will be able to purchase a wide range of AFVBC-branded products
How come there are two Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs (AFVBC's)?
There are two AFVBCs because after there were financial difficulties (within afvbc.net) which the Director of AFVBC.net was told about, he did nothing about it or try to protect the veteran's funds. This has led to the .net organisation submitting dormant accounts to Companies House for a number of years, stating they are not trading. The Director of afvbc.net then went on to make numerous false allegations to government organisations. Which were found to be false and malicious. These allegations continue to be made but no evidence has ever been supplied to support them. We do however have evidence to support what we say and the reasons for there being two AFVBCs, we suggest before people believe what they are being told ask for the supporting evidence !!
Are both the Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs (AFVBCs) Linked?
There are two Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Clubs (afvbc's) but they are not linked in any way, shape, or form, this is because the afvbc.com is set up correctly. All funds are accounted for and we have receipts for everything, no single person has access to any funds, and all decisions are made by the admin team.
Why "By Veterans For Veterans"?
Since the Original Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs (afvbc.com) is run "by veterans for veterans" it allows more funds to go to veterans charities. We have a Community Bank Account. This bank account allows us to run it for free and if the Bank thinks anyone is being paid they will change the bank account so we have to pay fees.
So, if a CIC is paying banking fees, then questions need to be asked why (is someone being paid? Why are funds being taken away from veterans?)
Who is Paid?
NONE of the Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs admin team are paid, they offer their services and time for free. We do have to pay organisations such as Companies House (confirmation statements) and suppliers who provide services/products for us to run our online shop.
How do I get my Breakfast Club Listed on the Directory?
Can I be listed with .com and .net?
The Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs (afvbc.com) DO NOT have a problem with listing clubs that are also registered on .net, it is the .net directors/admins who have a problem with it. Once you are registered with .com you may find .net removed your club and show there is no club in the area. This has been done to many clubs who have continued to be listed with us and asked .net to remove all information about their town/city completely from .net website.
Why have I been told the Original Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs Logo/Trademark is defunct?
The person/organisation who told you the Original Armed Forces & Veterans Breakfast Clubs Logo/Trademark is defunct is trying to mislead veterans, it is the same as being told there are official and unofficial Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs. Since all clubs are run autonomously the aim of all Armed Forces Veterans Breakfast Clubs is to support and help veterans. Knowingly giving out false/confusing information to veterans is hindering the support/help offered to veterans, especially when there is no evidence to support that information.
What happens to the funds that are raised from the sales of the merchandise?
The funds raised are kept to a minimum, they are used to keep the website running (Website hosting) and also to help pay for the payments required by Companies House, these fees are mandatory and must be paid when submitting accounts on a yearly basis. If you look at Companies House, you can see we have submitted accounts since the company was formed. We have not and will not submit dormant accounts whilst we are still trading as some organisations have done. Any excess funds raised will go to purchase merchandise and event insurance so our clubs can attend events in their area.
