The Annual Subscription fee is £10.00 (ten pounds), payable upon joining and thereafter on 1 April in each year.  A Bankers Order form can be obtained from the BAPG office giving instructions to the member's bank to set up a standing order payment to the BAPG.

Sister Member Programme

The British-American Parliamentary Group, in conjunction with the UK Caucus in the House of Representatives, is pleased to introduce a Sister Member Programme which aims to pair a Member of Parliament (from either House) with a Member of Congress, based on similar ideals, committee assignments or districts. 

The Sister Member Programme will not only help to provide greater certainty about the future of our transatlantic affiliation but will endow those involved with an unparalleled resource in terms of communication and shared information with Members of Congress working on corresponding affairs.

The programme will help to: facilitate networking opportunities; share information and advice; enable the comparison of committee issues and provide an insight in to the American position on affairs of mutual concern. 

The pairing would be informal and once introductions have been made it would be the responsibility of the individual members to manage the relationship. 

Those Members interested in being paired with a Member of Congress should please contact the BAPG office for further details.
