 70 per person

 But, if you have fewer than seven members, there's a minimum group fee of $455 which gets split between the group.

 

35 convenors

In recognition of your organisational prowess, you get a sweet 50% discount!

 

Here's how a group's total membership fee is calculated based on the number of members:

 Other Costs

admin fee

 There is a one-off $30 admin fee for new groups. You only pay this once if joining BDS for the first time.

return courier

Delivery is included in your membership fee. For returns, we recommend pre-purchasing our subsidised Track & Trace courier bags (with no weight limit) if you need to return books via courier. When split between your group members, this is a safe, convenient and inexpensive way to return your books.

A pack of ten large bags is $105

For more information about returning books, see Courier & postal information
