How to Join the BSA

Joining the BSA is quick and easy. Simply join online and your membership will begin immediately.


In June 2020, the BSA moved from fixed annual membership to rolling membership model. New members can join at any time in the year and receive a full year of membership.

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 2:  Decide your membership category and download, complete and return (fax or post) the Membership Application Form (pdf).

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.
