What should we do about memberships for the next academic year?

Where a club or society is considering charging membership, it is important to reflect on the extent to which you can guarantee your ability to provide your club and society activity over the next term and academic year.

It may be appropriate where there are significant costs involved in activity after December 2020, to offer a split membership. For example, a membership price for term one, with a date to reflect on activity beyond this.

Clubs and societies should consider the potential impact of a change in government or University guidance limiting activity and requests for pro-rata refunds from their members.

SUSU appreciates the financial challenges that all clubs and societies will face during this period of uncertainty and asks that Committees take a considered approach. In most cases, we believe that a bespoke membership cost for term one will likely be the most appropriate approach.

 

Please make sure your membership details make clear that there may be reduced activity or limited capacity if this is relevant.
