Membership Secretary and Membership Database
Membership Secretary’s Report 2021-2022
Our membership for 2021/2022 was 457 memberships which is a new record for this century and much of the last. Our members have been very loyal during the pandemic years despite the inability to have in-person meetings. Last year did see an increase in opportunities for outdoor meetings over the first year of restrictions. The 457 memberships represented at least 778 individual members. Seven times someone chose to give the gift of a Nature London membership. 212 memberships were paid online using PayPal. More than 52 percent of memberships received a paper copy of The Cardinal.
Our “Guide to the Natural Areas of London and Region” maintained its popularity with club members as well as non-members. Thirteen (13) Guides were bought by non-members and 39 were bought by members and some were intended as gifts for others. Thank you, Ros and Jim Moorhead and Mike Channon.
Let us continue to enjoy the many activities of Nature London and encourage others to be part of this growing club.
Hugh Casbourn continued to provide support for the Membership Database. Summary reports were created as needed and some ad hoc questions about our membership were answered. A number of enhancements were made to the database to accommodate new procedures in membership.
