To be a full Member of the Science Group one has first to be a member of the Anthroposophical Society (any country). Non-members of the AS are welcome to join as Associate Members. Joining involves a small annual subscription from both Members and Associate Members (see below).
The Group is open to all those interested in Science, whether they have had a scientific training or not.
Ad hoc groups, based on subject or locality, are very much encouraged. Individual members or groups of members are encouraged to organise meetings or work on any topic that comes within the area of natural science, mathematics or astronomy. It is hoped that such meetings will take place in all parts of Britain.
It is up to all members of the Science Group to take the initiative, alone or with others, to organise any meetings or conferences. The committee will co-ordinate dates and advertise the meetings in the Science Group Newsletter (if enough notice is given), without taking responsibility for the meetings.
Each meeting or group of meetings should be self financing. Financial backing for meetings is not generally available and in any case will only be available if prior written agreement has been obtained from the Science Group Committee.
It is hoped that meetings will be organised by volunteers receiving only expenses, in order to keep the cost to a minimum and allow as many people as possible to attend.
Membership of the Group is an annual subscription of £10 for members in the UK, £12 for those living in other European Community countries, and £14 for members in countries outside the E.C.
Newsletters will be sent out to all members. One payment is due for every calendar year (1 January to 31 December). If members stop paying their subscription no newsletters will be sent after 1 year and after a second year membership will automatically lapse. Members are asked to make their regular payments in January each year.
