Individuals should then enter their details. At the point at which payment is required they should select the Direct Debit option. Please send the original completed form to Josh Niderost, PSA, 113a Jermyn Street, London, SW1Y 6HJ. Membership will be activated following reciept of a completed Direct Debit Form. 

In future years Postgraduates will be charged £44 for PSA membership. Concessionary members within the ECN will be charged £44. Members of the ECN in employment will be charged £81.
