An Affiliated Society is different from a Branch (as referenced in the Dickens Fellowship Constitution) 

Constitution Section A VI – AFFILIATED SOCIETIES* Societies with some Dickens interests in common with the Fellowship (eg Pickwick Clubs and Dickens Societies based in educational establishments and therefore not “open to all”) may affiliate to the Fellowship on the recommendation of the officers and with the approval of Council. (* refer to Constitution Part B item VI)

Constitution Section B VI - AFFILIATED SOCIETIES Such societies’ annual affiliation fee is set at half the rate for branch dues; an unnumbered Charter is supplied, clearly showing affiliation, not branch status; the names and a contact address for each society will be listed in The Dickensian under a separate heading of Affiliated Societies. Members of these societies will have neither voting rights nor Fellowship benefits.
