Opportunities for companies

This year saw the SLA launch a new chance for our commercial partners to become official members of the SLA for the first time. This is a way for us to recognise the vitally important role that our partners have, and to spread best practice and help you achieve the things you want. 

Supplier Membership

Supplier membership is open to companies who are engaged with, and wish to engage SLA members. 

The supplier membership offers value for companies, and special benefits chosen with companies in mind. Membership includes a copy of our journal, TSL, and other benefits. The cost is £190 per year and represents great value for money.

View an online sample copy of TSL or get in touch to see what you're missing out on! 

For more information, please contact our Membership Officer, Helen Emery via the information on the Contact Page.
