Autumn 2009 - Membership

1st October


There have been a few new recruits to our Branch since the last Newsletter and we give them a warm welcome to WPSA-UK. Unfortunately, there is still a net decline in membership, so may I please ask you to be continually on the lookout for potential new members for our Branch. We need to maintain membership numbers in order to retain strength and credibility internationally.

Full details about the Branch and its activities with a downloadable application form are available on our website.
