In the past few years we have found it increasingly difficult to find receipients for sponsored membership, with this in mind from 2020 this category has been replaced by “Supporting Member”. Whilst members can still use “Supporting Membership” to sponsor a “Neotropical National Member” of their chosing. Members who do not nominate a recipient will have part of their payment taken as an un-restricted donation to the the club.
Becoming a “Supporting Member” gives you the benefits of an Individual Membership and either is taken as an un-restricted donation to the club or pays for an Individual Membership for a nominated Neotropical national who might not be able to afford the membership. Please note that you do not need to nominate a recipient, but if you wish to do so, please ensure you supply details of your nominated National, including an email address.
There are two types of “Supporting Membership” depending on how you choose to receive your publications, either paper or digital. In either case if you nominated Neotropical National they will receive their magazines digitally. You will both receive two issues of Neotropical Birding and one volume of Cotinga. The two publications are complementary, and both fill unique niches in the bird publications market.
Prices for paper copies for you and digital copies for your nominated Neotropical National are $80 / £45 / €65
Prices for digital copies for both you and your nominated Neotropical National are $60/£43 / €52
