Update on payment options

We are pleased to announce that SENR members can now pay for their annual SENR membership by monthly direct debit, in addition to the existing payment methods of one-off direct debit and paying by card. The annual fee for one-off direct debit and monthly direct debit options has also been reduced slightly, making them cheaper than paying by card, and therefore bringing SENR membership fees more in line with BDA membership fees.

If you wish to pay for your SENR membership by monthly direct debit, you will be able to do so when your membership is due for renewal. Please let us know at if you wish to discuss this.
