Members receive a regular illustrated Newsletter

Members have priority and reduced rates for advertising
Members are given priority and reduced rates at
the Association's Spring and Summer schools,
and other BA-organised courses. Members become
eligible for bursaries to attend courses or for
specific studies, and may purchase our occasional publications
and DVDs at reduced rates and borrow from the slide library.
Members are given access to around 1000 others with
a huge range of experience and expertise in all aspects of these
crafts in over 20 countries. While the Association is based in
Britain, around 15% of its members live overseas - but keep in
touch via our quarterly Newsletter.
We accept credit/debit card payments through PayPal.
You don't have to join PayPal to use your card. If you join or
renew in this way, we will email you as a reminder when your next
sub is due.
If you prefer to pay by cheque, we can accept Sterling
cheques drawn on a UK bank. If you use online or telephone banking,
you can set up an automatic payment from a UK account or use our
IBAN number for international payments.
Click on the category of membership you wish to
purchase or renew and you will be taken to our online application
form, where you will be asked to enter your details and confirm
how you wish to pay. You can stop the process at any point right
up to the last step where you are asked to confirm that you wish
to pay. Please note that "UK" includes only England,
Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The other parts of the British
Isles (Eire, Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey) count as Europe.
The "EU" category is defined by postage rates rather
than politics or geography.
