The future of the BCCA relies on encouraging new members to join. Once someone becomes a member, we hope that the excellent value for money will become evident and the new joiner will stay and become a long term member.
Accordingly, we do not wish new joiners to be discouraged from joining at any time in the year due to the seasonal timetable resulting in them not obtaining full value for their subscription in the first year. The Executive Committee has therefore decided that for a new joiner (i.e. someone who has not previously been at any time) joining on or after 1st March in any year, their initial subscription will pay for membership until 31st August in the following calendar year, ensuring that the new joiner obtains at least one full year’s value for their initial membership.
