Tis the Season for Subscribing

Dear BARS members

As the newly-appointed Membership Secretary and Treasurer of the Association, I’d like to introduce myself to you and to thank you for your continued co-operation and support as BARS members.

I’d also like to remind the membership that annual subs are due on January 1st and to ask that you check your standing orders are for the correct amount of either £25 (waged) or £10 (unwaged/postgraduate).  As many of you will be aware, the BARS Executive took the decision in 2012, after consultation with the membership, to make a modest increase in subscription fees to £25 (waged) and £10 (unwaged/postgraduate).  Our aim in the longer term is to increase BARS membership, both UK and overseas.  If you know anyone working in the field who isn’t currently a member, please do invite them to join the Association or email their contact details to me at MooreJV@Cardiff.ac.uk.  Herewith is the web link to the BARS ‘How to Join’ page: http://www.bars.ac.uk/join/barsjoin.php.

With thanks and best wishes for the festive season

Jane Moore

Treasurer and Membership Secretary
