Partner Membershipis for those who reside as a second member of the same household. Partner Registered members enjoy all the rights of full membership, but will not receive the BBKA News.

Social Membership is for those who wish to belong to the Association, but do not require BDI or BBKA Public and Product liability insurance. Social members do not have any voting rights, but will receive copies of the ‘Manchester Bee News’.
