Join The ACT DSA


ACTDSA Membership Application Form

There are many benefits of being an ACTDSA Member. To join, please complete the form below and press the submit button.

You will not be required to make payment online, because we do not yet have that facility available. Instead, our Office will contact you to confirm the details of your membership and to tell you how to make your payment.

The first half of the form is all you need to complete to get your membership underway: however, we would be very grateful if you would take a few extra minutes to let us know some additional information about your family’s interests. This will help us to be more responsive to the needs and interests of our members.

We look forward to welcoming you as a member of the Association!
