Join the Society

The table below shows details of the different membership options available to you.

Before proceeding please check here to see if your firm is already a large group member as this will entitle you to membership as part of that group without any further payment.

Please note that because our Society is run entirely by volunteers and our adminstration as such is limited, we run our membership rates / fees from January for 12 months to the following Janaury. Please contact Steve Roberts, our Membership Secretary for further information.
