Never learn about an LSE alumnae and alumni activity or event after it already took place. Never miss out on any new benefit or service for LSE alumnae and alumni. As a member you will receive personal communications on all activities, events, benefits and services of the Association.
The Association often pays event venues and other suppliers in advance to ensure financial transparency, to secure attractive space, by requirement or for other practical reasons. Whenever that is the case, the Association may ask LSE alumnae and alumni and their guests to help cover some of these costs. Members of the Association always pay a lower or no contribution to these event costs.
Some of the Association's events are heavily oversubscribed. As a member of the Association, however, you will be first allocated the limited number of event tickets before all others.
