You can sign up and pay online for your first year of membership today. The annual fee is £25 and this is abated monthly, so you only pay for the months remaining in this calendar year. You will get a password for this site and on payment you will become a provisional member and be able to log in immediately to see the current edition of our magazine. (Confusingly this is called “password”.) The other pages will remain closed until you are promoted to full membership, so you will not at this point be able to view our members database or book any of our events. If you are a current FCO employee, please use your personal email address and not your official one when completing the sign-up form: the FCO security blocker prevents the website sending you messages, and you will not be able to complete the sign-up process.
To become a full member you will need to set up a standing order for your annual subscription starting 1 January 2018 and annually thereafter. You will receive an automated email instructing you how to do this. Meanwhile the office will confirm that you are eligible for membership, and once you confirm that your standing order has been created, you will become a full member. You will be signed up for our newsletter and able to use all the Association’s facilities. Membership includes a spouse or partner using the same email address.
