We invite you to sign the UCRF manifesto and become part of the community of concerned researchers in fashion. The membership fee is GBP 20 per year, and our membership year runs from 1 February to 31 January. If you join UCRF in the second six months of the membership year, your membership will run to the end of the following membership year. We use an online service, Membermojo, to manage our members’ details and payments via Paypal.

To sign the manifesto and join the Union of Concerned Researchers in Fashion, please go to our Membermojo membership form.

Please note that by signing up you are agreeing to your name, organisation/affiliation and country appearing on the list of signatories on the website, and that the reasons given for signing the manifesto may, at some point, be published. We encourage you to review the Frequently Asked Questions as you consider joining.

If for some reason you are unable to pay the membership fee and still want to be a UCRF member, please get in touch with us and we will figure out a solution together. Likewise, if you are in a country where Paypal is not accepted, please get in touch with us and we will figure out a solution together.

Existing members If you are already a member of UCRF, you can update the information that you gave when you joined by visiting your membership page. Via this page you can also renew your membership, look up details of fellow members in the member directory and set a password to log in directly in the future.

To cancel your membership If you would like to cancel your membership and leave UCRF, please contact us. Please note that membership fees for the remainder of the membership year will not be refunded. If you cancel your membership, we will remove all of your personal data from our records.

Use of the membership fee: In 2020, the Board plans to use membership fees to fund the expansion of the UCRF website to better communicate our activities and resources; for recurring costs including the website domain, hosting, Membermojo service and Paypal fees; and, if the budget allows, administrative support for activities such as the Local Assemblies and Glossary project. UCRF is a non-profit organisation and the Board and members participate in meetings and projects on a pro bono basis. Full details of income and expenditure will be shared with members at the first AGM, which will take place later in 2020 (date tbc). In 2019 the website setup and recurring costs (website domain and hosting) were funded through donations from the UCRF Board.
