How to Join the BSA
Joining the BSA is quick and easy. Simply complete the online joining form and your membership will begin immediately.
You can now apply for membership for 2019. This will start on 01 October 2018 and it will last until 31 December 2019. This means that you will pay for 12 months but will receive 15 months membership.
Should you wish to apply for 2018 membership still, which will expire on 31 December 2018, please call 0191 3830839.
The annual membership period runs from January to December each year. Applications received before 1 October will be processed for the current calendar year. Applications received after 1 October will be processed for the following calendar year. New joiners applying for membership after 1 October receive the remainder of the current year FREE, including the Winter edition of the Members' Magazine, Network.
There are currently three ways in which to apply. These are (in order of preference):
Option 1: JOIN ONLINE - payment by credit or debit card only. Please note: this method gives you immediate access to online membership benefits, including registering at member rates for our events and conferences.
Option 3: Ring the BSA Office on 0191 383 0839 during office hours (9.00am-5.00pm). Remember to have your credit/debit card details handy, or alternatively you may request an invoice. Invoices are particularly useful if you prefer to have your place of work/institution pay your subscription.
