How your membership helps EACH and the community

Your membership is vital to us and the work we do. EACH is a charitable organisation and as such we rely on membership fees, income from courses and conferences, and donations to achieve our aims. But it is more than just the money. We would like EACH to be the place where researchers and teachers, throughout the world, can turn to for help and support as their natural academic home and to feel that they have a group working for them and their causes. In order to provide help and support to the wider community, EACH needs to be seen to represent the whole constituency of communication research and teaching and to be your advocates in the wider world.
