Register with the SPA by Post

If you prefer to pay by cheque, you may download our application form. Please print out the form from your web browser, fill it in and send it with your cheque to the address at the bottom of the form.

Please note that if you choose to register by post and/or pay by cheque rather than doing it all online, you will not automatically be given a website user account. If you have registered by paper form and wish to have a user account on the website, you will still have to fill in the online form. The website co-ordinator will then have to get confirmation of your payment from the membership secretary before your user account will be set up. The same applies if you have registered online but paid by cheque. Please understand that this may take several days.
