On membership and membership fees
Our newsletters are read by over 450 people. However, the membership fee for 2011 was paid by just 150 people. The larger the list, the more considerable the Society is for the Trondheim Commune and the Russian Embassy, and the greater our chances of getting support are. We are also supported by the SiT (a student organization) - it is important for them to know the number of students among the members.
Price policy on the events organized by the Society encourages membership (members of the Society receive a discount, the difference is usually 50-100 NOK)
Members of the Society take part in the tickets raffle for concerts and events organized not by "Skazka", etc.
Membership fees are spent on website hosting, costumes, equipment for events, etc. The report on expenses and income is available for each member.
Subscribe to the newsletters on the life and culture of the Russian-speaking community is available to everyone, with no membership fee. Letters content does not depend on membership and contains no advertising.
The members list is not published on the website.
Together we are strong! We hope for your understanding and support!
