The Society presently has 549 members with a maximum membership of 550 and no waiting list.  No new membership applications will be accepted until September 2018 when they will be addressed as part of our annual membership renewal process.  In the meantime, potential new members are very welcome to attend our monthly lectures as a paying visitor.

Visitors may also attend as a guest of a member twice a year at a cost of £7 per lecture.

Full Members

Membership renewal invitations and forms, together with information on our programme for the next year, are sent to existing members every July with 15th September being the final date for return. Once a completed form and membership subscription are returned, the Membership Secretary will mail out a new programme card and a membership card for the ensuing year. The annual membership subscription is currently £35.

New Members

Membership application letters, together with forms and information on the Society, are sent out in August/September, once it has been ascertained how many places are available, and continues until our membership is complete. When forms, together with membership subscriptions, are returned to the Membership Secretary, a programme and a membership card are mailed. We hold a New Members drinks party immediately following our November lecture.

Waiting List Members

When requests for membership are made, the Membership Secretary will either send out the New Members' application pack or, if the Society has its full complement of 550 members, a Waiting List application letter and form. On receipt of the form and waiting list subscription, a programme summary will be mailed. The Waiting list subscription is £7 per year.
