Unfortunately, experience has shown that a  few people join using the Association using the monthly direct debit subscription to gain the relevant course or event discount and then leave. Because of this we have had to introduce a caveat to the membership discounts on course and event fees for those paying by direct debit. We require new members using the monthly direct debit option to have been in membership for a year prior to being able to access course or event discounts.

If you are paying your annual subscription in a single payment then you are entitled to the course discounts from the point of joining.
