‘Clan’ Gunn Society UK membership 2018
Interested to see that Clan Gunn Society UK membership continues to struggle with 311 members in 2018, 306 members in 2017 and 308 members in 2016.
When the CGSUK started in 1962 there were about 276 members, of those about 251 were UK residents. UK members in 2018 are roughly 187. That’s a massive drop from 1962. The drop is even more marked if one considers the growth in the UK population since 1962.
Of the new 2018 members there were 17 from the USA or Canada, just 4 came from the UK and no-one from any other country. Sort of sums up the membership problem of the CGSUK. Its message certainly does not appeal in the United Kingdom based on these new member numbers.

I note the new membership numbers have gone up slightly. The key number though is that only about 166 members have a UK base - that is nearly 100 UK members fewer than when the UK society started in 1962. Clan Gunn Society UK is arguably only held together by its overseas membership.
