Volunteers may choose to become a "Member" of the charity. This has no impact on their ability to volunteer for Student Robotics, but creates an opportunity for them to have more of a say in the long term direction of the charity. The role of a member is defined in the constitution. Members must be approved by the trustees.

If a volunteer wishes to become a member of the charity, they should e-mail the trustees with the following details:

  • Name (first name and surname)

  • Email (alternative email to that issued by SR)

  • Home address

The register of members is available for inspection by application to the trustees.
