Membership Records Update
Please email the BAOS office at email@example.com if any of your Membership details have changed.
The Membership year runs from January-December. There is no discount for joining mid-year as you will receive all backdated issues of the online journal and be eligible for discounts on all BAOS events including a £100 discount on the BAOS Conference. BAOS are asking all Members to pay by Direct Debit.
Please note that after your first year of Membership, Direct Debits will be taken on the 1st of January each year. You will receive a reminder regarding your fees at the end of each year.
Please send your Direct Debit via email to firstname.lastname@example.org rather than posting to us as the office is currently closed due to the Coronavirus.
Please note that Membership applications may take a few weeks to process. If you wish to qualify for the BAOS Member discount on conference tickets, you must be an approved and paid BAOS Member. If you wish to apply for BAOS Membership in time for the conference, please ensure that your Membership application is received 8 weeks before the conference booking closing date. Please note that Membership applications received after this time are not guaranteed to be processed prior to the conference and therefore Member discounts will not apply to tickets purchased. We are unable to refund non-Members who book conference tickets and subsequently become Members.
