Membership Term

All memberships are annual for 12 months and on joining BVNA you agree to pay for 12 months of membership from the date you join. You can cancel your membership at any time but are responsible to pay any outstanding fees due for the annual membership.

Cancel Membership

Membership can be cancelled by the BVNA on the following grounds:

  • You may cancel your membership within 5 days of signing up.

• If a member has conducted themselves in a way that is prejudicial or contrary to the best interests of BVNA. In this event, the Council will inform the member of their perceived misconduct, and allow 2 weeks for the member to respond. Council will decide if the grounds for cancellation are upheld and inform the member of their decision and why.

If membership is cancelled, the member has the right to appeal against the decision by emailing the President up to 2 weeks after they have been informed of the decision.

Council will then review and agree a final decision and inform the member of their final decision and why.

• If there is a non-payment of membership fees, the member receives a written reminder of non-payment 2 weeks after the due date. If no payment is received, membership is cancelled.

A member can cancel their membership by emailing membership@bvna.co.uk at any time but is responsible to pay any outstanding fees due for the annual membership.
