Buy a subscription here to join the Society, or renew your membership, and receive 6 issues of Slingshot, and access to the Society forums. Worldwide postage for your Slingshot subscription is included in the price. We normally publish 6 issues of Slingshot a year, so your membership will last 1 year, but if there are delays your membership will extend until you have received 6 issues.

Frequently Asked Questions

Payment is via Paypal; Paypal should automatically convert your currency. You do not need a pre-existing Paypal account to use the site: Paypal accepts one-off payments. If you're in a territory not supported by Paypal, contact the Membership secretary using the form on the Contacts page and we'll try and work something out.
If you don't want to buy the products online, please download the postal sales form from our Downloads page (or link directly from the menu to the left). A third option (to using this cart, or to using the postal service) is to just go to Paypal and use the "Send Funds" function there to wire payments directly to membership AT soa.org.uk (replace the AT with an @); this may be helpful if you want to use the online service but are having problems with it.
Family Memberships are memberships which provide all the benefits of membership except for a Slingshot subscription (e.g. a membership number, vendor discounts, forums access). They are available to individuals living at the same address as a full (Slingshot subscribing) Society member. They were previously made available on a chargeable basis. They are now free. To ask for a family membership, please submit your request via the contact form, setting the Topic to "Family Memberships".
Your membership subscription includes the Slingshot postage price, worldwide (yes, the price is the same for everyone). Other items from the store are charged for postage at cost, which is calculated during your checkout process.
