‘Don’t Just Take Notes, Pay and Get Access’

Are you tired of trying to take notes during sessions and scared of missing out on what is actually being discussed? Become a member and get access to presentation slides and focus on the discussion!

Having access to presentation slides is only one small perk of being a member of the ACA. Have a look at the full range of membership benefits here:

Did you know? – Members are offered a reduced rate for our annual conference. This reduced rate in addition to the membership fee of £25* for the first year is still cheaper than non-members rate for conference alone.
