Multi-Subscriptions For Member Societies

BCHF Member Societies (societies with dues paying members) can enhance the benefits they offer to their own members by packaging subscriptions to British Columbia History with their society’s membership.

How Does it Work?

When your society renews its membership to the BCHF in December, it will let us know if it will be opting into the Multi-Subscription Program. Under this program, a society can buy a membership for each of its own dues-paying members for the cost of $20 per subscription for each interested member. Every society that takes advantage of this program will receive a free ad in British Columbia History to promote its work, its recent publications, or upcoming events. The more subscribers a society can sign up, the larger the ad the society can claim.

By opting in, your society can offer regular and deluxe memberships to your members AND increase your society’s visibility with the free ad.

Here’s what a membership dues structure might look like:

•    Regular Annual Membership to Your Historical Society $25
•    Deluxe Membership to Your Historical Society $45 (includes regular annual membership AND a subscription to British Columbia History)

Number of Subcribers = size of Ad

1 – 10 subscribers = 1/8 page ad ($50 value)
11 – 20 subscribers = 1/4 page ad ($80 value)
21 – 50 subscribers = ½ page B&W ad ($115 value)
50 to 100 = ½ page colour ad ($150 value)
100 and up = full page colour ad ($225) or a 1/4 page ad in all 4 issues, etc.
