There are a lot of negative things one might say about the pandemic and, certainly, they have been dwelt upon so extensively on both traditional and social media that we do not feel a duty to add to the list. Rather, we shall attempt to find a "silver lining."
The loss of in-person events, while disappointing for the Society, has required us to find new ways to interact with our members and friends. As a result, our pivot to online programming has seen great success. We are pleased to note that, not only have many of our members continued to engage with us throughout the lockdowns, but we have seen many from well beyond the borders of our fair Commonwealth join in the fun as well. It is our most sincere wish to continue these programs and to widen our circle of Regency-appreciating acquaintances.
To that end, we have created a new level of membership: the Associate Membership. This level of membership is ideal for those who anticipate only interacting with the RSV online. Dues are only $5/year per person and allow access to the "Members Only" section of the website and our mobile app, discounts to online events and our Member-Friendly Merchant discounts, and early access to some of our more popular events (although different pricing may apply). In contrast, privileges available to Individual and Family Members that are not available to Associate Members include the ability to vote on RSV business, run for RSV office, and receive in-person event discounts.
If distance prevents you from being part of a group dedicated to the exploration and enjoyment of early 19th century history, the Regency Society of Virginia cordially invites you to join us online as an Associate Member. Click here to be welcomed into our community today
