ATS 50th Anniversary 2012 'Erasmus' RIver Cruise 2012
The ATS works closely in the UK with the Royal Thai Embassy, the Thai Students' Association, Asia House, various universities, and Thai and British businesses. It is linked with organisations in Thailand, including the British Chamber of Commerce (BCCT), the British Embassy, the British Club, the Royal Over-Seas League and the Siam Society.
Following many years of dedicated service to the Society, including 6 years as Chairman in the 1990's, Bernard Coe was appointed Honorary President in 2012. The Society's patrons are H.E. The Thai Ambassador and The Lord Geddes.
The ATS maintains an Education Fund to reward Thai students for outstanding efforts in the UK ; and a "hardship" fund to provide limited emergency financial aid to Thai students. On occasion it raises charitable funds, for example for post-tsunami recovery and for orphanages in Thailand.
In addition to the opportunity to meet friends and others with an interest in Thailand's people, culture, cuisine and business, benefits of membership also include a 50% reduction in the joining fee at the Royal Over-Seas League and beneficial rates for Thai-related events at Asia House.
Membership costs £20 a year for single and £30 for joint membership. There are special rates for corporate membership and opportunities for sponsorship.
