Member Announcement List

Membership announcement email lists are used to inform members of Society activities and initiatives that are relevant and specific to members as well as requests for engagement on topical issues and input on surveys.

Joining Society membership announcement emails lists is an automatic process and linked via your membership record. For example, if you are a DCP Faculty of Addictions member in Northern Ireland, in this instance you would be assigned to the DCP Faculty of Addictions and BPS Northern Ireland Branch membership announcement lists too. However, you will need to opt-in if you are not already receiving these emails

It is therefore important to keep your society membership record up to date!
