All non-profit Societies, no matter how big or small, rely on funding and membership dues to sustain them. RCLAS is no exception, and we are by no means big.
At present, funding comes from two sources. First, we benefit from a very modest grant from the City of New Westminster (for which we’re exceedingly grateful). And second, we depend heavily on dues from members like you.
When you become a member, you not only help us keep the torch lit for writers. You also help yourself.
Here are some of the benefits of an RCLAS membership:
• Significant discounts (or sometimes free!) for any RCLAS Workshop
• 50% discount on submission fees for any RCLAS-sponsored writing contest
• Varying discounts (or sometimes free admission!) for any RCLAS Programme or Event
• Our electronic newsletter, free! (10 issues a year)
• Email notifications of upcoming RCLAS activities, automatically received
• ‘Schmooze nights’ and networking opportunities with other members
