Because of the Coronavirus Pandemic and the uncertainty that this has presented the committee has decided not to admit any new members during this year, 2020-21.
Membership of the society is restricted to 275, because of the size of the Matthews Hall. The annual subscription for the 2020-21 season is £30 which is due each year by the date of the Annual General Meeting, normally held in June. The subscription for 2021-22 will be reviewed before the AGM this year.
New members pay an additional joining fee of £15. Members can now pay their subscription by internet or telephone banking.

Members must register their attendance at each of the monthly lectures. Those who are on the waiting list are welcome to attend (fee of £5.00 pp each time), and members are also able to bring guests who may attend for the same fee. However, because of the constraints set by the seating capacity of the hall, please ensure that a place is booked through the membership secretary.
Members of ExeDFAS are automatically members of the parent organisation The Arts Society. This entitles them to a quarterly magazine, with a variety of benefits and savings. There is a national membership card available from the membership secretary. This sometimes gives discounts to special exhibitions and museums. Further information is available on The Arts Society web site through this link.
