Accessing the BAS website

BAS switched to a new online website in March 2019 allowing members renew, register and pay for membership online. However, there are still some members that are paying at a previous membership rate e.g. £16 or £18 per annum. These members won't be able to access the members section of the website and register for BAS events.  If you think are one of these members please contact the membership secretary (membership-secretary@bas.org.uk with any details you can provide.
