Associate members have all the rights of full members but are not entitled to nominate members to the board or vote at the AGM.
Anyone can become an associate member. This includes individuals, businesses, and local or central government organisations.
There are four types of associate membership:
- Associate: student/unemployed: £5 (inc. vat)
Open to all students in full-time education or those who are unemployed and not on a placement or course.
- Associate: individual: £20 (inc. vat)
Open to any individual who supports LSA`s work.
- Associate: corporate: £100 (inc. vat)
Open to any corporate organisation (for example firm of solicitors) which, although not a charity, supports LSA`s objectives. All members of staff (in the branch) are entitled to the benefits of membership.
- Associate: public authority: £300 (inc. vat)
Open to all local authorities and government agencies in Scotland. All elected members and staff of the local authority or public authority receive full membership benefits. Also, one delegate is entitled to attend all LSA seminars for half price.(It does not need to be the same person each time!)
