A word from your new Board of Directors

It is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that we welcome you all ! Now that the Association’s future is assured, we wish to thank you for your continued support.

New membership form

Two new offers are available when renewing your membership. You can now renew your membership for two years, affering you a small discount. In order to recognize the participation and to encourage the involvement of a spouse in the life of the person with Sjögren’s, we offer a half-price membership for the spouse.

Updating members list

During the month of January 2019, we wish to update the Association’s members list and contact information. At the same time, we would like to send you a short questionnaire to better understand your interests and needs, as well as your situation. Members of the Association will first attempt to communicate with you by telephone. If it proves impossible to join you in this way, we will proceed by post. A personalized letter will be sent to you with the data we have on our list. Whether accurate or not, we ask you to indicate it by return mail. A reply envelope will be included for your inconvenience.
