Following a meeting on 14th March 2007, BSP Council unanimously agreed to open Associate membership of BSP to all DCPs registered with the GDC forthwith. Existing benefits of Associate membership of BSP will continue to apply (details are available here.). This will be ratified at the next AGM in November 2007, and the membership forms and categories on the website will be updated accordingly soon. However it was decided that since the AGM is not for some time, Council approved an immediate change. Membership fee rates will be unchanged. There will be no reduction in fees for student associate members, those doing postgraduate training or for those within 4 years of first registration.
