Family Membership: (£24 per annum)
Two persons living at the same address, will be considered as Ordinary Members, but only one copy of the Annual Report, and Newsletters will be supplied.
Institutional Membership (£30 per annum)
Membership by a voluntary or professional organisation. An Institution member will receive the Annual Report and Newsletters. In respect of all other benefits, conditions and rules relating to an Institution, the Committee is empowered to consider each applicant on an individual basis. In practical terms this refers to how many people from each Institution may take part in Group activities if so desired at any one time, and how membership relates to on-site visits for insurance purposes.
Each Institutional member will be offered the use of a single web page on the MBGRG website, to publicise their Institution. This will enable the member to forward any promotional material, including logo and graphics, to our webmaster, so long as this does not in any way conflict with the website, or the ideals of MBGRG in general. It should also where possible reflect the interaction and co-operation undertaken between the work of the Institution and MBGRG. All such material will be inserted and updated by our own MBGRG Webmaster, in agreement with the Institutional member.
Please 'Contact Us' if you are interested in further details.
