2018 Subscriptions - three updates.
1. The subscriptions for 2018 have now been confirmed, as a continuation of the previous minimalistic fees.
2. The period for which the annual subscription applies is now 1 January to 31 December each year. - something which requires the committee to set the fees each November, for the following year. The purpose of this change is to allow members to know subscriptions costs at the very start of the school year, and make payments at this time - rather than wait to the first committee meeting after the AGM.
3. Invoicing of schools (by email) for CSTA subscriptions is now underway.
The committee anticipates that the above will significantly assist schools and individuals to support the CSTA through their subscriptions, and allow the continuation of the professional sharing of science ideas, pedagogy and resources that are the ethos of this Incorporated Society.

After much discussion, a survey of members was undertaken, to check the effectiveness of CSTA's communications. and it transpired many of you also preferred :
Consequently this website has been completely rebuilt in an economical, yet mobile friendly format ... while retaining the opportunity of frequent updating.
This is why the 'newsletter per term' currently seems unnecessary.
