Duration and benefits
Current annual rates
Please note: as agreed at 2018 AGM and decided at the committee meeting, any discontinued full members, should they wish to renew their membership or re-join, their membership will be regarded as a new full member in terms of membership benefits in the 1st year. This means they will have to pay the £35 membership fee, and cannot enjoy all the financial benefits during the 1st year.
If you are joining the BCLTS for the first time, please fill in the membership application form online before you make the payment online. The Committee will inform you of the decision via email within two weeks. New applications are open from October to March of the following year. Any application received outside this period will NOT be processed.
If you have inquiries about payments, please contact our Treasurer Ying Peng (Y.Peng@leeds.ac.uk).
For any other information, please contact our Coordinator Li Li (firstname.lastname@example.org).
