Is QUANTA stil alive / accepting members?

Postby Pr0f » Fri Mar 13, 2020 11:23 am

I tried requesting membership on the quanta home page, it seemed to go through ok, but I have not heard a been since then - that was over a week ago, just wondering if this organisation is still active ?

Dave.

Hi Dave

I can confirm that I continue to receive the periodic Quanta magazine, so my understanding is 'yes, Quanta is still very much alive...' :-)

Dave.

I'm technically on the Quanta committee but somewhat distanced from day-to-day running of the organisation. The organisation is still active.

I'll forward a copy of your message to the committee.

Hi,

Just received Quanta eMag, Volume 36 Issue 5

The title says Dec-Jan 2019, must be a typo...


Regards,

Derek

@Pr0f, whereabouts dif you find the sign up page ? I was just thinking over the weekend that I should rejoin (having been an on-off member over the years, mainly because I kept forgetting to renew!).

Do I just use the Contact Us page?

Also, it says tht membership is free - is that correct? I had no idea that change had been made.

Yes - on the contacts page, on that first drop down there is membership secretary - I think that's what I used. I think things take a little while ;-) I haven't paid anything yet- I was hoping to be able to unlock the quanta library CD - but still waiting for a reply on that one.

I assume quanta membership is free - I have not paid anything, and you can download a lot of the back issues as pdf format - there is some useful info in there.

Aye, I had to double check the post stamp as at first I though last years had taken 12 months to find its way to my home...

I think it should have said Dec 2019 - Jan 2020.
