The British Humanist Association 'holds various events through the year. These offer humanists and the public a chance to socialise, enjoy yourself and learn. Our Events pages contain details on these, as well as related events held by other organisations, and other notable dates ... Numerous Local, Student and Special Interest Humanist Groups affiliate to the British Humanist Association from across the UK. These groups are independent and autonomous but affiliate to us to show that they fall under the humanist umbrella and that they agree with our overall purpose as an organisation ... These offer further opportunities to meet like-minded people, many groups hold talks and social events, or even undertake actions in the local community or campaigns work in line with BHA objectives.'

Conflict and disagreement should be resolved through peaceful means rather than through coercion or war ... Members of Federal Union receive regular updates about publications, events and campaigning. The minimum membership fee is £15 (waged) or £10 (student/unwaged). Please give more if you can – our campaigning depends on the support of our members.'
