Terms & Conditions of Membership
The Constitution of Polymyalgia Rheumatica and Giant Cell Arteritis UK (PMRGCAuk) allows the charity to set up various forms of membership.
Currently, the three forms of membership are:
- Individual membership, on an annual basis, with a subscription of £20 for waged members and £10 for unwaged members. Individual members have full voting rights at general meetings of the charity. They are entitled to attend all general meetings, and nominate trustees, put forward resolutions at general meetings, etc.
- Affiliated organisation membership, also on an annual basis. Affiliated organisations (such as support groups and other independent charities) have one vote at general meetings and similar rights as those of individual members.
- Members of affiliated support groups and members of the HealthUnlocked web forum are regarded as Associate Members. They do not have independent attendance or voting rights at general meetings.
Individual and Affiliated organisation members also receive, via post or email, free copies of the PMRGCAuk newsletter, which is currently published three times a year.
