Membership of the Correspondence Circle

What do I get when I join?

  • Upon payment of their annual subscription, Correspondence Circle Members are entitled to a copy of Ars Quatuor Coronatorum, the annual Transactions of Quatuor Coronati Lodge. This is produced towards the end of each calendar year and provides the full text of all papers delivered during the year together with the questions and answers that followed; the Transactions also contains book reviews and shorter articles in one elegant volume.
  • In addition, Members are offered discounted entry to conferences and symposia arranged by Quatuor Coronati, and enjoy discounts on regalia and books.
  • They also have access to the Research Services offered by the Lodge.
  • Members who provide an email address receive a Summons to each regular lodge meeting and, via email, advance copies or summaries of papers. Members are welcome to attend meetings if they are members of a lodge in a constitution recognised by the United Grand Lodge of England, and those attending QC are warmly welcome to stay for drinks and dinner afterwards. This provides an opportunity to meet the speaker and members of the Lodge in a relaxed and informal setting.
  • CC Members are entitled and encouraged to wear the Quatuor Coronati Correspondence Circle breast jewel, tie and lapel pin.
  • New Members receive a bonus back issue of AQC.
