We need members so, if your membership has lapsed, or you want to join our society then print out an application form and send it to us. Also if you live outside of the UK you can still join with us, to increase our knowledge of your part of the world’s methods and techniques.
Please note — Members living outside the UK will be charged an extra £5.00 pa to cover the cost of postage of our quarterly magazine.
What could you do for the Society?
If a Society, such as ours, is to be successful, it is essential that a good proportion of the members are prepared to play an active part in the Society’s activities. Below are a few possible ways in which members might be able to contribute. If you feel you may be able to contribute in any of the ways mentioned below, then please indicate this on your membership application, or contact the Secretary by email or telephone.
Committee and Officers
The Society requires a committee to organize its activities and officers to carry out the main day-to-day tasks. The officers consist of a Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, Newsletter Editor & Webmaster. Committee members do not necessarily need to make a great commitment of time. Most committee businesses are dealt with at the annual National Satsuki Event, plus ad hoc meetings, usually at other major bonsai shows.
Newsletter and Website Contributors
Could you supply articles for publication in our society newsletter or on this website? These could be items on Satsuki culture and training based on personal experience; local or regional “gossip”; drawings, cartoons, photographs, or any other items that might be of interest to members. Contributions could either be on an occasional or regular basis.
Do you possess Satsuki which would be suitable for exhibition purposes? It would be a great help if exhibition organizers could contact owners of Satsuki who would be willing to exhibit their trees. Information (addresses etc.) in any register of trees would be kept absolutely secure.
