PGDE and retired teachers new

Since the recent changes in the HTAI Constitution (AGM 2010), there are now two categories of membership:
Full membership which is open to those who pay the annual subscription to their Branch Treasurer. They are entitled to participate fully in the Association.

Associate membership which may be granted free to all those studying to be history teachers and to retired members of the Association. This entitles them to notices of meetings of their local branch.

We look forward to hearing from retired members who wish to remain associated with HTAI free of charge. They can do so by getting in touch with their local branch.
