As from the beginning of August 2014 the ADA will be introducing a joining fee. This will be a very reasonable £20. This is substantially less than all other guilds and associations in our industry and will also help us to finance ongoing administration costs and help fund the new ADA national survey. This aims to gather information about all areas of production across the UK and help build a better picture of pay and conditions both in film and TV. We hope, if you are considering applying for membership you will do so soon in order to avoid paying this new fee.
