Support with membership during COVID-19

The current situation is having a substantial impact on the community who use AER, but the extent of this varies enormously between organisations and individuals. We also recognise that effective communication of information is needed now more than ever. This is a time of high disruption, but also an opportunity to initiate change by facilitating communication and access to information. If you would like to talk to us about membership options to support your organisation in current and future circumstances please get in contact.
