Becoming a member of the NW Craven Branch RSCDS
Work of the RSCDS
As a regular dancer at NW Craven Branch classes we would like to encourage you to join the RSCDS, the worldwide organisation which promotes Scottish country dancing. The RSCDS runs popular residential Summer and Winter Schools each year and produces dance books and accompanying CDs. It also sets the standards for dancing, and trains teachers to run classes.
The greater part of your membership subscription goes to support the work of the RSCDS, while a smaller part is retained by the branch to support classes and local events.
Cost of annual membership for 2020-21 is £22.00 per person and £37 for a 'couple'.
Early payment discount of £2 for payment received before 31 Dec 2020, making the discounted fees £20 individual and £35 joint.
There is also a special offer of half-price membership for people who are joining RSCDS for the first time; effective from 1st January until the end of June each year.
The annual membership year runs from July to end June.
The membership renewal form has been sent out with the email branch newsletter. Payment can be by BACS or cheque. Please email our Treasurer for further information firstname.lastname@example.org
