Used to be a Member?
There couldn’t be a better time to return to membership
Whether you’ve recently left or you haven’t been a member for a number of years, we’d love to be able to welcome you back to IFST!!!
Over the last year IFST has seen a number of tangible differences within the organisation; we’ve had more media exposure; we’re working closer than ever with a number of organisations such as; FDF, Leatherhead, The Science Council & CIEH just to name a few and we have firmly established our social networking presence through the means of LinkedIn and Facebook.
So why should you rejoin?
This coming year (2011/12) is about delivering REAL outputs and tangible support for the profession and we want you to be part of the new IFST era where we’ll continue to enhance our communications and knowledge exchange for members; introduce new ways to engage with fellow members; increase support and engagement for students and those in the early stages of their career and finally developing new schemes to enhance the professionalism of those working in the sector.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to rejoin.
