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 may join visits (subject to space restrictions at some venues), for which there is usually a fee.

When joining the Society as a member or a member plus (below) you must be recommended by a current member. However it is possible to 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 Membership

Annual subscription: £70 reduced to £65 if paid by standing order This category is the same as above, except that such a member may be accompanied by another designated person within his or her family (broadly interpreted) at all the Society's meetings and visits. The name of such other person must be recorded with the Secretary. You will receive one set of mailings (Journal and Newsletter).

Institutional Membership

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 and all four people are able to attend Silver Society meetings, events and visits as well as receive the Newsletter by email. The lead member has the right to vote as a member of the Society, on behalf of the institution.

Student Membership

This is a special category for people under the age of 30 (not necessarily registered students) at the start of the subscription year. Benefits are the same as for a Member (see above). Annual subscription £25.
