Membership in the GSE is done individually and commences on September of each year for the upcoming season of events. Members are entitled to a discount on registration for all events (attending two events will cover the cost of membership). Members will be emailed regarding events both those hosted by the GSE and those felt to be of interest to our audience. Renewal notices will be sent out annually as well.

In light of the Society’s strong financial position and due to the impact COVID-19 has had on our members and our ability to host events, the Executive has agreed to extend all current 2020/2021 memberships for the 2021/2022 season at no additional cost. Please use the registration option below only if you are purchasing a NEW membership. If you contact information has changed, please send us an email.
