Membership

MEMBERSHIP

Thank you for taking the first step towards becoming a member of SLACC-tt.

We want as many people as possible to become a member so have a range of membership fees you can choose from.

How much are membership fees?

Membership fees start as little as £10 a year.  Of course, you may be able to pay more than that and we welcome whatever amount you feel comfortable to contribute.

Some members pay monthly, others on an annual basis.  You simply need to tell us how frequently and how much you’d like to contribute.  The minimum fee is £10 a year.
