Annual subscription rates

The Group’s membership year runs from 1 August to 31 July. Subscription rates are set annually by the members attending the Annual General Meeting, held in the autumn, and subscription renewals are requested in November. If you join the Group between 1 May and 31 July, no further subscription is payable until the following year. The current annual subscription rate, set at the October 2022 AGM, is £25·00. Members who live outside the UK are asked to donate a further £15.00 as a contribution to the cost of posting their Journals.
