If you were previously a member of the BCS and wish to re-join, please click here to send an email to the membership team, including your full name and membership number (if you have this). A member of the team will re-activate your existing membership to allow you to set up a new direct debit within your My BCS website account area. For members based outside of the UK, a link to pay by card will be sent instead. Please note in your email if this will be required.

After a few years in which membership subscriptions were frozen, membership subscriptions now increase each year in line with CPI. This enables the BCS to maintain and improve the services offered to members.
