ASTENE Membership

Membership is open to all, regardless of nationality, and the Association is keen to foster an international co-operative network.

There are three types of membership, depending on residence / status. All categories receive the Bulletin of the Association for the Study of Travel in Egypt and the Near East: Notes and Queries. Members are also encouraged to attend the Annual General Meeting.

Membership is per calendar year; payment may be made for up to three years in advance for postal payments. All payments must be in pounds sterling. Payments may be made by cash, cheque, standing order or credit / debit card using Visa or Mastercard or Paypal.

Subscriptions (which include two full issues of the Bulletin and two interim ones) are due at the beginning of each calendar year (January 1st). The subscription can be paid for up to three years at a time; in such instances any increase in subscription will take effect only at the end of that period. We hope that UK tax payers will be willing to sign a Gift Aid donation form, which will allow ASTENE, as a registered charity, to claim back tax on subscriptions.
