The rates for direct individual membership remains the same as last year.

A new rate for under 18s is introduced. Membership for those aged under 18 on 1st January will be free of charge.

You can join BCA as an individual or a joint member. Joint members have all the same benefits of membership, but only receive one set of publications and, as such, receive a discounted membership rate.

All BCA membership periods start on 1 January or later and run for the remainder of the year. Subscriptions for new individual members are reduced pro rata on a quarterly basis for the year of joining, depending on when you join. Therefore the fee payable for new members joining from 1 April is three-quarters of the full-year fee, reducing to half on 1 July and a quarter on 1 October. If you join after 1 October, you also have the option of paying for the next calendar year in advance, in which case you will be gifted membership for the last quarter of the present year free.
