New paper membership card from the RPS erodes its reputation


From an environmental perspective, excluding printing and delivery carbon footprint, there was more paper involved in sending out the actual card itself. I recommend digital membership in future. I'm sure it would be a significant cost saving. Sometimes I think an enamel lapel pin, like the nursing badge, would be a good show of RPS membership , especially if you are a Fellow. A plastic card has many uses in life but it has never helped me show that I am an RPS member.
