1. What is the difference between the Society for the Study of Gambling and other organisations?

The Society does not have a collective opinion on gambling issues. Its purpose is to provide a forum for consideration and debate regarding research, scientific study and information.

2. What is The Chatham House Rule?

The Chatham House Rule (devised in 1927 by Chatham House, London) means that participants at a meeting are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speakers, nor that of any other
participant may be revealed; nor may it be mentioned that the information was received at a meeting of the Society.

3. What will I find in the Society for the Study of Gambling Newsletter?

The Newsletter contains written texts of presentations made at a Society meeting by those speakers who have consented to have their paper published. Additionally the Newsletter will contain information relevant to gambling issues that is likely to be of interest to its members.

The current fee for membership of the Society is £75 per annum for individual members, and £200 per annum for corporate membership or £25 for those who are full time students. The cost for non-members who have notified us in advance will be £35 per meeting.
