Gareth Morgan wrote, to all VSSN members:-
As Treasurer, I would like to thank all those who have made the commitment over the last year to being formal members of VSSN and paying a subscription. It is through this support that VSSN has been able to make the strategic commitment to the Executive Officer role. Moreover, it looks as though through the hard work of Matthew and Felix and members of the Steering Group we have just this week reached the critical figure of 100 paid up members!
So, in the next few days when you get your membership renewal letters, do please respond promptly! Your support in renewing your membership is vital to continuing this work. Remember that as a formal member of VSSN you get a big discount on the cost of VSSN seminars (£15 instead of £35), the right to be included in the VSSN Members Research Directory, and of course the right to vote and stand for the Steering Group (Trustee)!
If you have joined the discussion list but are not yet a formal VSSN member, the easiest way to join is via our online Join page. Also, following the constitutional changes agreed in the Spring, VSSN now offers Organisational Membership, so an organisation with a number of people involved in voluntary sector research can enrol the whole team without paying individual subs. Please e-mail Felix via firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for a copy of the VSSN Organisational Membership form.
