Supporting the Loughborough Branch

Our supporters fall into three categories:

1) Branch Members who are either:

    (i) Affiliated:   Members of our parent Royal Aeronautical Society

        who have registered an interest in the Branch.

    (ii) Associated:   Non-RAeS members who pay an annual  

        subscription and hold Branch membership cards.

        (Members in this category are referred to as Branch Friends by  

         the RAeS.  They have also been termed Subscribers.)

2) Visitors - interested members of the public who occasionally

    attend our meetings.

3) Students - whether Affiliated Society members or not.

Only Branch Members are entitled to vote at Branch Meetings

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 Committee page to register.  Or just email loughborough@aerosociety.com.

Attending meetings in person or online via TEAMS

For all RAeS members and Students attendance at our meetings,

in person or online, is free.  We encourage any other member of the

public who attends or watches regularly to become an associated

Branch Member for whom a payment of £15 covers the whole

season of at least nine lectures.  To  become a Branch Member please

download the  Application Form (or pick one up from a

meeting) and use one of the two options to apply.)   Other visitors are always welcome to attend or join online but every time they do we invite them to make a small donation.  Like other branches we suggest £3 which can readily be paid in cash in the lecture theatre or by texting LUFBR to 70085.

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 Royal Aeronautical Society member or a regularly renewed Branch Member.  Click here> to download a Committee application form.
