You can pay it yourself and claim it back from your institution, you can ask your institution to pay membership via PayPal or you can email us for our bank details and we can set you up on the online system manually.
My institution used to have institutional membership. How can we support/collaborate with the FSA?
We can add your institution to our institutional affiliations page, discuss hosting conferences together and any members in your department are welcome to sign up individually.
I have tried to register but the website says that this email is in use. How do I register on your site for membership?
Our membership runs via wordpress and you become a ‘subscriber’. So if you have registered the email address you are trying to use for a wordpress account previously, you need to use these log in details. You must log in before registering in the log in box on the registration page. If you have forgotten your password there is an option to reset it in this first log in box. Alternatively, you can use a different email address to register or you can contact us and we can add you to our site manually and you can pay membership directly to us.
