Note that approved applicants for membership (not students) become corporate members of the Register of Qualified Genealogists. This is a democratic organisation: each member has a vote and can participate in controlling the company at the AGM. As this is a company limited by guarantee, not by shares, members are guarantors not shareholders and each has a liability, limited to £1. See the Articles of Association for further details.
Annual membership charges are £50 for members and £20 for student members and are payable once the application has been approved. Student members upgrading to full membership will pay the full membership fee, less a discount for any unused student membership.
