Branches and Affiliated Societies of the Dickens Fellowship

Branch and Affiliated Society Structure
  • Branches and Affiliated Societies are autonomous bodies which have independent programmes and  membership arrangements.
  • The network of branches and affiliated societies is co-ordinated by the Central Fellowship in London
  • Branches are an integral part of the Fellowship. They are self-supporting, elect their own officers and dispose of their own funds.
  • Affiliated Societies pay a reduced affiliation fee and their members have no voting rights or other Fellowship benefits.
  • Branch administrators can add local events, or alternatively can send details to Calendar and News
How to Form a Branch or Affiliated Society
  • A new branch or affiliated society of the Dickens Fellowship can be formed with the agreement of the Council, who meet annually in April. At these meetings each branch of the Fellowship is represented (either personally or by proxy). Once agreed a charter will be awarded.
  • A new branch or affiliated society needs to show some evidence of :-
    • Viability – number of members (this can be around 10-15 to start with).
    • Details of activities already undertaken (meetings, talks, social events).
    • Location of meetings.
    • Information about the subs charged (if any) to members.
  • Once chartered, branches are required to pay annual subs of £30.  Branch members are entitled to a reduced subscription rate to The Dickensian, the journal of the Fellowship, to attend the annual conference, to vote at the AGM and at Council, and to free entry to the Charles Dickens Museum in Doughty Street, London on production of their branch membership card.
  • Once chartered, affiliated societies pay annual subs of £15 and their members don't receive the voting or benefit rights of branches.
  • For further information please see our Constitution or Contact Us
