How to Follow Groups

Anyone can choose to add any of our groups to your areas of interest, but you must be a registered member first.  Please click on MEMBERSHIP OPTIONS in the top menu to see what the different styles of membership entitle you to.  Once registered and logged in, you can visit any of our group pages and click on the ADD  *****  TO MY GROUPS  button top right.  Eventually we hope to add personalised newsletters, depending on your areas of interest, to the services we offer our members

You can follow more than one group, for instance if your research is based in one geographical area, but you attend meetings at other groups.  Before the groups appear in your MY MEMBERSHIP menu you will need to refresh the page.
