The Society is managed by an elected Council and its President is The Right Revd. Dr David Hope KCVO, a former Archbishop of York.
Membership is open to any individual over the age of 16 who has a love for Yorkshire and its speech, and to organisations which share a common interest in language. Members receive the Society’s annual winter journal, Transactions, and the mid-year Summer Bulletin (both usually containing written dialect) free of charge.
MEMBERSHIP IS JUST £12.00 per annum (UK & Europe) and £15.00 rest of the world.
Online memberships will be renewed every 12 months from the date of subscription. You will be notified in advance of future renewals, giving you the opportunity to opt out of membership.
In keeping with us being a nice and traditional society (stretching back to 1897) we also accept postal subscriptions.
