Deadline for 2018 conference tickets approaching

Time is running out to get your early bird tickets for this year’s Modern Studies Association (MSA) Annual Conference, in Glasgow. Interested members have until 12th October to buy your ticket(s) via Eventbrite.

Booking via Eventbrite is simple, and allows you to select your seminar choices before paying via invoice, credit card or debit card.

To pay using invoice, click the green ‘Tickets’ button at the top of the Eventbrite page, select your desired ticket type and quantity, before hitting ‘Checkout’. When the page loads, scroll down to the ‘Payment’ section and choose ‘Pay by invoice’ from the drop-down menu next to ‘Payment method’. When you have completed the booking process, an invoice should be attached to your booking confirmation e-mail, though this might arrive in your Spam or Junk folder(s).

If you have already booked your ticket(s), please make sure that you pass your invoice (if paying this way) to your establishment who should pay the balance to our Treasurer, whose details are clearly shown on the invoice. Otherwise, we look forward to welcoming you along to the Queen Margaret Union on Saturday 3rd November.

Book your ticket(s) now by clicking the button below.

Members’ Area is up and running – create an account now

Earlier this year, we announced that the Modern Studies Association (MSA) had set a new membership record. This announcement clearly encouraged colleagues the length and breadth of Scotland to join the MSA to ensure that our voice is heard at all levels of the Scottish education system.

This much welcomed rally of support brought down our website, meaning delayed membership applications and a non-functioning Members’ Area. Since then, our website administrator, Scott Campbell, has been hard at work, and the problem has now been resolved. In order to be GDPR compliant though, previous Members’ Area accounts have been deactivated, meaning members are invited to create their own accounts via the ‘Join’ page on our website.

Thank you to all members for your patience as we worked to resolve this issue and provide the best website possible for our 600 members. You can create your own account through the ‘Join’ page on our website.
