My BDA membership is essential to me. Engagement with the BDA and specifically the specialist groups allows for me to help engender change within the profession not just locally but nationally. The BDA helps to support this and drive forward on important topics. In addition, when needed the BDA are an excellent source of support for professional grievances and advice.
