Membership

BLRS Membership

Members enjoy many benefits, including reduced cost entry to regular society-sponsored or co-sponsored conferences, plus membership of the International Affiliation of Land Reclamationists (IALR). Corporate members can send up to six employees to conferences at the members rate. Membership also provides a forum for professional and social contact with other land reclamationists and possibly support to attend relevant national and international conferences.

Members also receive the Society’s thrice yearly newsletter, Reclamation, which contains commissioned articles, conference reports, reclamation and member news and a diary of forthcoming events. Corporate members can receive up to six copies of the newsletter. Members can also access past editions of the newsletter from the members only area of this web site.
