High involvement

This is the most active membership level. Level 1 members will receive information almost every month, including a regular newsletter, plus invitations to special events, groups, seminars and open days. Level 1 members will also be asked to take part in some surveys on a voluntary basis. Information sent will be tailored to your interests.

Medium involvement

Level 2 members will receive information frequently, approximately five or six times a year. Occasionally be asked to take part in surveys on a voluntary basis. This will include a regular newsletter and other information tailored to your interests.
