As well as a year of good “fun, fitness and friendship” your annual membership in the Vancouver
Branch will provide you with:
– semi-monthly Vancouver Branch newsletter, the White Cockade
– full membership in the Royal Scottish County Dance Society
– free bi-annual magazine from RSCDS, Edinburgh and access to the members’ website

Your membership fees enable the Branch to provide and support:
– the Branch Teacher Certification Program every 2 years
– the Heather Ball in March with a guest band

A portion of all annual fees collected by Vancouver Branch are sent to Edinburgh ensuring that
all our members are registered members of the Edinburgh Branch.

Contact Information

It is important that all of your contact information is kept up to date.  Please inform the Membership Secretary of any changes as our data base is not connected to the Edinburgh website.

All members can log on to the Edinburgh website to either update information or retrieve your Membership number.  Go to and click on Login in the top right corner of the page.  You may use your email address or your Membership number to login and, if you have lost track of your password, set another. Once in, click on My Account then scroll down to My Details and then down to Membership Details  and update both as necessary.  It would be helpful to our Membership Secretary if all Branch members made sure that their contact information is correct on Edinburgh’s website.

If you have any questions regarding Membership please send Email Message to Patsy Jamieson or call 604-929-4884.

Membership Cards

The Membership card you receive this year will be your permanent card with your permanent Membership number.  The cards have been laminated to ensure that they won’t be damaged.
