Membership – Shares Magazine

Membership for Readers of Shares Magazine

Dear reader of Shares Magazine, thanks for showing an interest in joining ShareSoc. We exist to support and represent the UK’s individual investors and we would be delighted to welcome you to our cause.

Associate Membership is FREE but you receive only a summary newsletter, may be charged more to attend ShareSoc meetings and otherwise do not obtain the full benefits of membership. All we ask is that you have an interest in stock market investment and support our aims.

Full Membership of ShareSoc, which gives you ALL the benefits of Membership, costs less than 90p per week. Full Members receive a 16-page or larger monthly newsletter focused on topics of particular interest to private investors including reports on companies that you can’t obtain anywhere else. Full Members can also join our on-line forums, get priority when booking attendance at our meetings, obtain free advice and otherwise get involved in our activities. You also gain access to a number of special discounts available from partner organisations. See here for more details: Member Offers. Full Members also have voting rights in the organisation and elect the directors.

We encourage you to join as a Full Member so as to provide some financial support to the operations of ShareSoc. Though we are a not-for-profit organisation, we do require this support for our campaigning activities and to serve our members directly.
