The Society consists of 260 members and the annual subscription for November 2018 to October 2019 is  £38. Membership renewal letters, along with the Autumn Newsletter, are sent out before the October AGM and membership should be renewed by 1st December. On renewal, members receive their The Arts Society Sanderstead programme and TAS membership cards.

If membership is full there is a waiting list, the registration fee for which is £5. Those on the waiting list, and visitors, are able to attend up to two monthly meetings each year. In addition those on the waiting list would be invited to the June or July meeting and drinks afterwards, and take up any vacancies on Society events and visits.

The Membership Secretary contacts those on the waiting list as vacancies occur, usually in November and December.
