How to apply

To become a member you need to complete the online form available here. If you are a UK tax payer please also consider completing a Gift Aid form so we can claim back the tax you have paid on your suscription.


Annual fees can be seen here. At present, we accept payments by PayPal. From 2021 annual membership of the Systematics Association will run from 1st January to the end of December. Reminders for those paying by Paypal will be sent out at the end of November/beginning of December. For those still paying by Standing Order, it would be appreciated if they could bring their payments forward to 1st January. Please check that you are paying the correct amount.
