We know that not everyone in the audience is a member of the Royal Society of Chemistry and there may be several reasons for this, but right now the RSC are offering free Affiliate membership to anyone who attends one of our online events. If you’ve ever considered joining but haven’t got around to it, or are not sure what you could get out of being a member, then maybe now is the time to sign up as an Affiliate for free and try it out.
