BGGC Membership runs for 12 months and the membership year commences at the start of April each year. If you join part way through the year you will pay a pro-rata membership rate, unless you take advantage of one of our packaged memberships which run for 12 months from your joining date (in which case you will pay pro-rata for the 2nd year of membership).
