Notice for all BDA and FDG members who wish to renew or join the FDG

We are switching over to online payments using the BDA online system as from the 16th of October.

Please note that we will only accept online payments and renewals from this date. Therefore:

If you wish to join, please let us know by sending an email to Kathryn Downham at and we will let you know as soon as the group is up and running on the online system. Further details will be sent to you.

If you wish to renew, please note that you will be notified via email when online renewal is ready, and therefore you do not have to take any action just yet. You will still have access to the website and resources as usual while we are transitioning.
