Dear SLAS Members,
Hope you are all enjoying a good summer break.
SLAS AGM Minutes Minutes from the March AGM are attached.
SLAS Membership standing orders
SLAS members now renew their membership each year via Wiley-Blackwell, but some are still paying standing orders from their bank account direct to SLAS for their membership as well as a hangover from the past. SLAS cannot cancel these standing orders. Any members who still have a standing order to SLAS are invited to cancel it, please!
