DSA Bulletin - important sign up news

As of September, the system that we had been using for our bulk emailing (primarily the bulletin list) was rendered obsolete due to an upgrade.

If you wish to continue to receive the DSA Bulletin each month, you will need to sign in using Mailchimp's 'double opt-in' process which is as follows:

  • Complete the form or click on the button for newsletter sign up on this homepage.
  • You will then receive an email asking you to confirm whether or not you really wish to sign up for this and to click on the link in that email to confirm.

If you signed up to our old system between Wednesday 27th August and Monday 1st September, please re-register using the above system or the sign up facility on the home page.

We apologise for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience. We hope that as many of you who read this will sign up and persuade your friends and colleagues to do so!

DSA 'In Focus'!

The DSA has produced a brochure that explains briefly what we are, what our Key Achievements have been and our Theory of Change, along with our current activities and future aspirations.

We encourage all institutional members (and potential institutional members!) to download either the brochure or the poster and display it prominently on your departmental noticeboards!

Alternatively, if you would like hard copies of the brochure, please contact us
