It is that time of year when Royal Society of Chemistry membership subscriptions arrive. One interesting point is that whilst every RSC member can join interest groups the majority don’t join any. Depending on your level of membership you can join several interest groups for free.
During the renewal period at the end of 2023, all members will be able to join an additional two Interest Groups as shown:
New number of Interest Groups included in membership
Student member – 3
Affiliate member – 3
Associate Member – 4
Member – 5
Fellow – 5
The aim of the increase is to support for multidisciplinary collaboration amongst members: it was thought that the current restriction on free interest group membership may be hindering awareness and introducing barriers for members to engage fully in the scientific areas relevant to them.
Details of RSC CICAG and details of how to join are on the RSC Interest Groups website.
