||I've now been a Chartered Scientist for a year and have just paid my annual fee (which I wasn't expecting). Has anyone else wondered why we're paying them an annual fee? Have you received any benefits? Any literature?
I feel the fee is rather like a bank charge. It's unreasonable. We're asked to keep to a Code and up to date but there are no advantages for us. Or am I missing something?
I phoned the Science Council and a very nice man accepted that there wasn't much in it for individual members. There might be in the future (a members area will allow us to 'network') but at the moment, we're essentially paying £25 for three letters. And to support the work of an organisation which one rarely hears about.
I'd rather pay bank charges. At least I see the benefits of being a customer.
