During the application process, you'll of course want a copy of our ID. However, the name in which I choose to present to the general public and online is different than the name I present to my friends and family. While I have no qualms identifying both to the CoS or the state in which I live, I have had very real life threats acted upon my person during the course of my civil aid career.

Do you allot a place upon our red card for a known alias, so I can easily be identified to fellow members online? Or would submitting a scan of a current ID card along with our membership card be a more appropriate avenue of introduction?

I actually do not know the answer to your question however one important use of your Red Card is to enable your admittance to formal members-only events such as the 50th Anniversary that was held recently.

If your name on your red card does not match your other ID I could see this posing a possible problem for you in this regard.

I am going back a few years now, but I believe I asked a similar question regarding my red card.

I use a pseudonym as a writer which I would have preferred to use but I was only permitted my real, legal name on the card.
