How to Join

Join the ALPSP community

All membership fees are frozen for 2021 so take advantage and join ALPSP today. Membership is for all employees across the organization. Subscriptions are for 12 months - we will forward a renewal notice three months prior to the end date.

Guidelines for membership: ALPSP accepts members on the understanding that those members adhere to legal and ethical good practice, and will not bring ALPSP into disrepute through their own activities or business practices. All applicants are required to accept the ALPSP Guidelines for membership.

Application form: To apply, complete the application form and submit online. Once received, your application will be submitted to the ALPSP’s Council for approval, which takes approximately two weeks. If approved, an invoice will be issued and your membership will be activated as soon as we receive payment.

Direct Debit now available: You can now spread your payments throughout the year! Direct Debit through GoCardless is now our preferred payment method. You will be notified before each payment is taken and your payments are protected, so you’re guaranteed a refund if a payment is ever taken in error. To pay via Direct Debit, please complete a Direct Debit mandate request form and the finance team will send you a secure link to complete your mandate. If you have any queries, please contact us
