The membership year runs from 1st April until 31st March but anyone joining from the turn of the calendar year will not be charged until the first April of membership.
Membership Cards and a lapel badge are free to members on joining and cards are replaced annually.
A Newsletter is published quarterly in January, April, July and October each year and members are encouraged to contribute articles of interest and topicality. These should reach the editor no later than the end of preceding month.
We currently have members all over the Country who retain their military link with Lancaster through our Group and occasionally travel to join in our activities. Naturally the majority of members are located in the LA and CA postcode areas.
In common with any other organisation we require a small number of people to take on the responsible committee roles that ensure we function effectively and have an impact in the District. We are always keen to encourage new members to take on these positions.
We welcome everyone who has an interest in and sympathy for the military community in the Lancaster District. We are a joint services organisation in addition to uniquely welcoming civilian members who have not previously had such a connection.
Our members enjoy a varied programme of talks, usually accompanied by a light supper on both contemporary and historical military subjects and given by a wide range of speakers.
In addition we hold an Annual Dinner where a 'Nationally Significant' speaker provides a topical overview of recent and current Defence Thinking Among others we have enjoyed the Chief of the Defence Staff and the Second Sea Lord, with speakers from all three services and the world of Academia.
