Recently we launched new online application forms for individuals and corporations wishing to join OES. Unfortunately, due to data security concerns, we have had to temporarily deactivate the online forms and revert to the old-fashioned paper-based forms. Please note that if you recently applied to join OES using one of the online forms, your application would not have reached the OES Secretary. The data contained in the form would have been deleted, and you would need to re-apply using the paper forms.

If you are setting up a Direct Debit after 31 July and before 1 October, this will not be taken until January of the following subscription year so please contact the subscriptions team when they email you your membership number to make a payment for your current year’s membership fee over the phone.
