How to apply

Membership application to the Society must be made by completing the online Membership Application Form HERE

We require your first year's (or half year fee if applying after April) to be paid by credit/debit card during the application process.

In order to help reduce the administrative costs of the Society, we actively encourage members to pay subsequent annual subscription fees by direct debit. Click here to download the Direct debit form.

In addition to personal details, the membership application must include a brief Curriculum Vitae, including the following;

  • Professional qualifications
  • Employment History
  • Two referees the Society can contact (They do no need to be members)

For further information please contact Dylan Taylor by telephone on 020 7269 7843 or by email at membership@britishpainsociety.org.

The Membership Application Process
Once you have submitted your online application form including payment, your application will move through the system to the Honorary Secretary who will check that your application meets with the requirements of the Memorandum and Articles of Association and Regulations of the Society. At this stage, you will be granted provisional membership and your details will be added to our database. Following provisional approval, your application will move through to the final stage of ratification by the Council of the Society. Once ratified by the Council you will be fully confirmed as a Member of the Society. Until this time your membership remains as 'provisional' and you will not be able to access the online features of membership. 
 

The whole process will normally take two weeks.
