The Society would like to know your views on making its magazine, Slingshot, available in a digital format suitable for tablets and ebook readers. Therefore during the checkout process you will be asked your opinion on this and we should be grateful if you could select your preference from the list shown. Please note:
By joining you will receive 6 copies of the magazine "Slingshot".
You will be sent a Membership Number, which you may use with a number of suppliers to obtain discounts.
You will receive a code which you can use as a discount on the Society Store.
You will be eligible to join the Society's online forums - contact the webmaster with your membership number to arrange an invitation.
Please allow 28 days for your membership to be processed.
For any queries please contact the Membership Secretary using the Contacts Page.
Membership can either be completed on-line here, with payment by PayPal (note you may or may not need a PayPal account to use this, depending on the money laundering regulations being enforced by PayPal for your location), or alternatively you may download a form using the link to the left, to send in your application by mail.
Membership will be charged in £ Sterling and converted at time of purchase.
Payment is via Paypal; Paypal should automatically convert your currency. You do not need a pre-existing Paypal account to use the site; but you will need to create a PayPal account in order to make the payment - PayPal now requires this because of anti-money-laundering legislation. If you're in a territory not supported by Paypal, contact the Membership secretary using the form on the Contacts page and we'll try and work something out.
If you don't want to buy the products online, please download the postal sales form. A third option (to using this cart, or to using the postal service) is to just go to Paypal and use the "Send Funds" function there to wire payments directly to membership AT soa.org.uk (replace the AT with an @); this may be helpful if you want to use the online service but are having problems with it.
Family Memberships are memberships which provide all the benefits of membership except for a Slingshot subscription (e.g. a membership number, vendor discounts, forums access). They are available to individuals living at the same address as a full (Slingshot subscribing) Society member. They were previously made available on a chargeable basis. They are now free. To ask for a family membership, please submit your request via the contact form, setting the Topic to "Family Memberships".
Your membership subscription includes the Slingshot postage price, worldwide (yes, the price is the same for everyone). Other items from the store are charged for postage at cost, which is calculated during your checkout process.
