Renew or Join BWAS for 2018
This year we are raising the subscription. You will remember at the AGM in February 2017 the membership were offered alternatives for the future. One was reducing the number of wines tasted each meeting; one increasing the fee but including the January meeting. These were rejected in favour of an increase for 2017 from £80 to £87.50 and, with continued rising costs, a probable further increase in 2018 of a further £7.50.
Your committee have decided that we will have to make an increase but of a smaller amount, to £90.00 for 2018, and we plan to maintain the high standard of wines tasted.
A society that has been running for 30 years needs to attract new members and there has been some success but this is a slow process. You can help by introducing a friend. We have also made considerable savings to our running costs by having two presentations given by members, thus saving outside presenters fees.
The new fees are therefore £90.00 for Full Membership and £48 for existing members who have Limited Membership.
Go to Membership Application for 2018, complete your e-mail address and other details and bring along to the next meeting with your cheque.
If you are bringing along a guest you need to bring a “guest” application form, available at Guest Membership Application for 2018, This is a legal requirement to cover the first free visit required by the licensing laws.
We look forward to some more superlative wines in 2018.
