Get involved

If you first wish to find out more about the BDVA, please be sure to visit our About Us page and take a look at the video there.

If you would like to get involved in the BDV PPP and the BDVA please consider the categories for engagement identified below (more details at Membership Categories). Also please consider the various application documents which are mandatory to examine in the case of categories C, D, and E since you are asked to formally sign and commit to them

For applications A and B the process is relatively straightforward and only requires 5 minutes of your time to complete a basic form of your details.

For applications C, D or E we are sure you will need to discuss internally at greater depth and fully consider the above documents.  We recommend you look at the scope of the Associate/Full member application form without filling it in, prepare yourself for the information requested and once ready then complete it.
