SAAD members

Thank you for your continued support and membership of SAAD. As a society we have managed to keep the membership fee static for a number of years, however a small increase is now necessary to maintain commitments to our members.

With effect from 1 September 2023 the annual UK subscription fee increased to £60, the international subscription fee increased to £70.

The fee paid by DCPs remains the same.
