I've always found the SPA pretty efficient. But keep in mind it does have difficulties getting people to do all the jobs, and it's now getting quite close to Xmas. However, you could wait and join next year & get the welcome pack before Xmas 2019 !
Best of luck from Cliff

Actually I am seriously considering NOT renewing my membership

The forum is almost and rarely used by any but the few regulars, and I get nothing for my membership in Wales other than a magazine

Shame, perhaps if I lived in England and could get to the only place that appears to have meetings I may stay but other than that I see no reason to remain.

Am I missing something, as you can still use the forum as a NON member?

Sadly, with many excellent , knowledgeable and above all free Astro groups available on the internet, "paid-membership" societies are becoming an anachronism (IMHO). At least with the "millennial" generations who grew up with mobile internet technology. It is just evolution at work I guess :)

Shame, as I was a member of the JAS

BUT then if they can not change with the times they go bust, BHS, etc

Skyhawk & Brian
I just typed a long epistle in response to your recent comments but got time out-ted.
I tend to agree with you both.
Though not strictly astronomy related, Skyhawk - you caught a nerve mentioning BHS.
My wife and I both thought our local BHS was quite a nice shop. Of course it was suddenly shut down - in my opinion - at the whim of all people, a Knight of the Realm.
I will not bore you with more - and risk getting time out-ted again
from Cliff
