Membership is open to everyone – those who wish to engage in active research or statistical compilation, those who are interested in reading and studying the results of fellow members’ researches – and indeed both!
Annual membership commences on 1 December of each year. Membership benefits include four copies a year of the ACS Journal The Cricket Statistician and a voucher, currently worth £8, to use towards the cost of one order of ACS print publications each year.
UK membership costs £29 a year, as does European membership. Overseas membership outside Europe is £34, and junior membership (under 18) £10; juniors should supply evidence of their date of birth to the Membership Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have also introduced a new option of digital membership at £25 a year, regardless of global location. Digital members will receive their quarterly mailing by email: this will include electronic copies of the Journal, the Membership Bulletin, the sales flyer, and (once a year) the AGM material. Current members wishing to switch their subscription for the coming year to digital membership should inform the Membership Secretary at email@example.com by 30 September; those wishing to receive the November mailing in electronic form should also inform the Membership Secretary, as this will be sent out before the renewed subscription comes into force on 1 December.
Junior digital membership remains £10, but juniors should inform the Membership Secretary if they wish to receive mailings in electronic form.
There is a £2 discount for all adult members paying by direct debit.
Direct debit is our recommended method, as it is quick, secure and cost effective. You can download the direct debit form as a pdf file here and print it out. After completing and signing the form, please return it to the Membership Secretary at the address given.
You can also join the ACS online via PayPal. Use the drop-down menu to choose the appropriate membership category. It is not necessary to have a PayPal account to use this facility; payments can be made by debit or credit card. (There is no discount for PayPal subscriptions, as the ACS pay a charge on each transaction.)
If you prefer to pay by cheque, download our membership flyer and application form as a pdf file here, print it out and return it to the Membership Secretary at the address given. (There is no discount for cheque subscriptions because of the extra administrative work required.)
