Supporting the Loughborough Branch

Our supporters fall into three categories:

1) Branch Members including

   a) Members of our parent Royal Aeronautical Society who have

       registered their interest in our activities.

   b) Non-RAeS members who pay an annual subscription to the  

       Branch† (see below).

2) Visitors - interested members of the public who occasionally

    attend our meetings.

3) Students - whether affiliate Society members or not.

It helps us greatly if our supporters, in whatever category, register with the Branch.   If you currently receive regular emails from us, you are already registered and need take no action.  If not, you can  use the on-line form on the Contacts  page to register.  Or just email loughborough@aerosociety.com.

† Previously known as Friends of the Branch.

Attending meetings

For all RAeS members and Students attendance at our meetings is

free.  We encourage any other member of the public who attends

regularly to become an affiliated Branch Member for which a payment of £15 covers the whole season which usually includes at least nine lectures.  Non-affiliated visitors are very welcome to attend  but every time they do, we invite them to make a small donation at the end of the evening (£3 is suggested).  To become a Branch Member please download the Registration form (or pick one up from a meeting) and use one of the two options to apply.

If you’d like to help run the Branch

just let us know.  The more helpers we have, the better the programme we can run.  And the more ideas the better.  There is no hard work; Committee members are committed for three evenings a year at most.  But to join the Committee you need to be a Branch Member.
