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 page to register. Or just email firstname.lastname@example.org.

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 (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 to download a Committee application form.
