I has here reproduced the SPR study day information on the forthcoming event, but having now rejoined the society i note one of the membership guidelines clearly states “Members of the SPR may not issue public notices or advertisements about purported SPR meetings or events either on behalf of the Society itself or in conjunction with other organisations (ref. Paranormal Review 23, July 2002), unless authorised to do so by the Council.” so I will not be publicizing or reviewing future events on the blog.
The relevant reference appears from a piece by John Poynton
“For this reason the SPR Council has requested members not to declare membership of the Society when issuing a personal statement of some kind, when advertising, or when promoting a personal publication.”
As a blog could be seen as constituting a personal publication, and although I always simply reproduce the SPR website text with a link to the website, I have decided to refrain from doing so in future.
