For fee-paying memberships, you must be nominated by 2 existing members and then voted in at the Annual General Meeting. You can initiate this process online by completing the application form. The form allows you to identify 2 members that will nominate you. Once confirmatory emails are received your name will be forwarded to the next AGM and membership activated once approved at the AGM.

Alternatively, if you are unable to be nominated by 2 existing members, you are able to submit a CV to be considered at the AGM. Please complete and submit the form online below, adding "Henry Dodds" and "Henry Dodds1" as the two sponsors. You will then need to send your CV in ".doc" or ".pdf" format to Henry Dodds, UKSSB Executive Assistant at who put this along with your online application to the BSS Membership Executive Officer for consideration at the AGM.

With this method of application, completion of the online form without the CV will not be considered, and the same if a CV is sent without the online submission of the form below.


For Non-Surgical Membership (2 years free), you will need only one existing BSS member as a sponsor. Please add in "Henry Dodds" to the second mandatory field.
You will not need to submit a CV unless you have no sponsors.
