Membership of The Silver Society

The membership year is the calendar year (i.e. starts on 1 January). 

There are four categories of membership:

Annual subscription: £55 reduced to £50 if paid by standing order
A member is entitled to attend and vote at all Society meetings, to receive the Journal and Newsletter and use the research area of this website. A member is welcome to join in visits and other events (subject to any space restrictions), for which there is usually a modest fee.

When joining the Society as a Member or a Joint Member (below), it is helpful if you are supported by a current member, if it all possible. Alternatively you could become a provisional member for a year before full membership. Please ask the secretary for details of provisional membership, and for any further information you may need. We do not issue a membership list.

Joint Member
Annual subscription: £70 reduced to £65 if paid by standing order
This category is the same as above, except that you can nominate another person within your family (broadly interpreted) to be a joint member. You are both able to attend all the Society’s meetings and visits but only the ‘lead’ member can vote (eg at the AGM). You will receive one set of mailings (Journal and Newsletter).

Institutional member
Annual subscription: £70 reduced to £65 if paid by standing order
The institution has the same rights as a Member and to receive one copy of the Journal and Newsletter. One member of the institution needs to be nominated as the ‘lead member’ and main contact, but up to 3 other members of the institution can also be nominated. All four people are able to attend Silver Society meetings, events and visits, as well as receive the Newsletter via email. The lead member has the right to vote as a member of the Society, on behalf of the institution.
