Becoming a member

We have made some changes to our membership format and structure to adapt to the new conditions imposed by the COVID pandemic. We are now working in virtual mode for the security of our members! Those changes, valid until the end of September 2021, will be reassessed at that time.

Our activities will now revolve around virtual presentations on Zoom! Those virtual presentations will be recorded and made available to our members on our website!
