Affiliate with the Amateur Entomologists' Society
The aims of the AES since its foundation by Leonard Tesch, in 1935, have been to promote the study of entomology among amateurs, especially young people.
The study and conservation of insects and other invertebrates have never been so important, and we believe that there is an urgent need for natural history societies such as ourselves to work together to encourage the general public, and young people in particular, to engage with nature.
Affiliating with the AES will not only help to promote your Society but will help us to further our aims and increase the public benefit our societies can offer.
What would affiliation mean?
This would depend on the nature and 'match' of the societies. At least two main types of affiliation are possible.
Standard AES Affiliation
Standard affiliation terms are flexible and would normally be cash neutral. They could include, for example:
- Co-promotion of affiliation partners on each others' websites and house journals
- Free admission to each others' events
- Discounts on each others' publications, where discount arrangements exist
- Opportunities to present at each others' events or submit articles to each others' periodicals
- Work together in other ways as appropriate, e.g. by organising joint events
