As a charity, the British–Yemeni Society depends on the annual membership fees of its members and on donations from generous individuals to fund its activities, including the organisation of lectures and conferences, the publication of its journal, and the support of humanitarian projects in Yemen. Currently, the membership of the Society stands at about 300 members. After more than twenty years of continuous operation, the BYS has become a well-respected bilateral friendship society attracting individuals not only from Britain and Yemen, but anyone with a personal interest in the country. This includes diplomats, academics, business people, artists, travellers as well as people who have lived and worked in Yemen, and members of the Yemeni community in the UK.
By joining the Society you will not only be supporting its valuable work but you will also enjoy access to its regular lectures and briefings, the receipt of its Journal covering an array of topics from the past and present of Yemen, along with the opportunity to socialise and meet fellow Yemen-enthusiasts. The Society offers three different membership options; ordinary, student, and corporate. To become a member please download the membership form.
