As Chair of the Management Committee I'm bent on increasing the membership of the society. It's great we have over 10,000 members, but how many does that leave who have no idea that they NEED our services. It's the only defence against an increasingly hostile publishing landscape, where those who create the content sit at the bottom of the food chain.
I personally have suffered from egregious behaviour by both publishers and agents, so I know iof what I speak, One MD of a major house tried to cheat me out of £15K in 2000. My then agent insisted I had no choice but to accept! (So much for representation) Both backed down when they found I was a member olf the SoA.
It's your Trade Union. You insure your house and your car. Only a dunce would fail to insure their profession. And it's even tax deductible. If your not a member join. If you are and know a writer who's not, get them signed up for their own sake
Along with our wonderful staff I'm sorking to make the Awards Ceremony a truly nationl event. That will get our name out to the public and everyone who employs words to make a living.
