In 2012 the NAS invited twenty members to become NAS Friends. The aim of the NAS Friends scheme was to raise £10,000 to pay for the design and launch of a new website in 2013 to serve as the Society’s online profile for the future as well as new online booking for events, membership subscriptions, improved shop, the ability to make secure online payments, as well as the new look member’s area.
In return for £500.00 the twenty NAS Friends were eligible to receive the NAS Newsletter and IJNA as well as all other member’s discounts for 20 years. NAS Friends are also eligible to attend NAS Fellows events organised from time to time, with the first being a behind the scenes private tour of the British Museum held in March 2013.
Whilst the NAS Friends scheme is now closed it is possible that the NAS will reopen the scheme in years to come to raise funds for other future important developments such as improved library resources for members. If you would be interested in becoming an NAS Friend in the future please do contact us.
