Annual Subscription fee
Your membership subscription is renewable on an annual basis. The subscription year runs from 1 January to 31 December. We require your first years fee to be paid by cheque or debit/credit card. If you are applying to join between the months of July and December, the Secretariat will award you 50% discount for your first year only.

The Society is always looking at ways to reduce the administrative costs of the Society and so is actively encouraging members to pay their annual subscription fee by direct debit. In order to better reflect the additional costs of processing cash/cheque/credit payments, as from January 2009 all members who chose to pay by methods other than DD will incur a £10 surcharge.
