Subscription rates

Subscription rates are now frozen until 2022

Recognising the financial pressures facing members due to the continued policy of civil service pay restraint, the FDA has taken the bold and confident action of freezing subscription rates. A motion committing to a five-year freeze was passed with overwhelming support at the 2017 Annual Delegate Conference.
