How long does it take to process a new membership application?

  • We approve and process new membership applications regularly throughout the week and aim to process them within 10 working days. Once processed, membership packs are emailed out. If we have a query on an application, one of our team will get in touch with you to check details which can sometimes lead to a short delay in processing the application; our memberships team will keep you fully informed of timescales if this is the case.  

    Membership passwords, to access the Members’ Area on the website, are emailed out as soon as a membership application is processed, meaning you can access things like online copies of Together, permit application forms and book onto member events before you even receive your membership pack in the post!  

    If you are renewing your membership see the FAQ ‘What happens when my membership is due for renewal?’
