Some members have been puzzled on receiving SLAS membership application forms with the September Gazette. Some existing members have even re--applied to join SLAS. However, when you read the edition, you notice that it contains also an application form for admission to the SLAS TCPD programme in January 2019. The SLAS membership application form is intended for completion along with the TCPD application and can be safely be ignored by existing members. At the same time, of course, existing members can always make the application form available to those colleagues who are not yet members of SLAS. Indeed, the application form might be multiplied many times over for that purpose.
