How to join / pay your subscription
Details of membership are kept in a computer database and are used solely for Club purposes. If you object to your membership details being stored in this way, or if you wish to see or update your details, please advise the Membership Secretary accordingly.
Membership runs from 1st January to 31st December in each year. The Club publishes a colour Newsletter three times a year and an annual journal the Essex Naturalist. These are free on publication to fully paid up members or for the year to which the subscription applies. Members joining the EFC part way through the membership year will receive the backdated publications for the year in digital format only, but hard copies can be collected at the annual Ex and Soc and the AGM if required. New members who join after the 1st October can defer their membership until the following 1st January, but they will not receive publications until that date. Occasional publications are made available at a reduced rate or free to members. And you also get the field meetings, Annual Exhibition and buffet, and expert help from Field Club Recorders and members!
