BACH 2019 Membership Renewal

IMPORTANT JOINING AND RENEWAL INFORMATION

BACH Invoice 
When we receive a completed form we invoice the college or organisation.  On the invoice there is a link ‘Pay online’ for debit or credit cards, so BACH never sees or holds your card details for your security. The invoice also has the BACS details.

Join now at 2018 rates to avoid the likely price increase in March
The BACH AGM has been moved from November 2018 to 18March 2019 and it is expected that the majority of members will vote to increase the membership rates at this meeting.  However, if you complete the joining form online prior to 18 March 2019 the 2018 rates will apply.

BACH Year
The BACH membership year is the calendar year starting 1 January 2019.

Annual membership rates valid until 16 March 2019
Full Membership (Colleges, Training Providers and Awarding Bodies) £295 including 2 Named Members who can attend Regional and National events at members rates

Additional Named Members £75 each

Consultants/Freelancers not working long-term for a particular college £75

Retired Members £12

This email has been sent to current and past members
This email is being sent to the 2018 members and those colleges that have previously been members. The reason for this is the changes BACH has made that are explained below.

Free and discounted National Development CPD Day places
BACH 2019 membership also includes a free place at the BACH National Development Day in November, worth £100.  Other ‘Named Members’ receive a 50% discount. 

Only BACH Members can attend Regional meetings and CPD
Only current BACH Named members and invited presenters are able to attend Regional meetings and CPD events.  In the past, we know some other Construction Heads have attended.  However, to be fair to paid-up members the only exception we will make is for those looking to join BACH who are allowed to sample one regional event. With our new membership and event booking systems, we can monitor attendance.

Join now – discounted part year joining fees will not be available to most colleges 
In the past, we know some colleges have joined late in the year at reduced fees. Now these reduced fees are only available to a college that has not been a member in the previous year and have not received a reduced joining fee in the last 2 years.

If you have any questions about renewal or join BACH please contact Ian Stirling Business Manager. ian.s@bach.ac.uk or call 07539 143184
