Directory Member Form


It’s great that you’re interested in helping people in your area find their missing items. The form below is an application to show your interest and provide information for your listing. There is no fee to be listed, but I (Laura Peters) will reach out to you prior to publishing your information.

We will have a call to talk through what it means to represent BAMDA as a lost item recovery specialist and I’ll answer any questions you have about offering your metal detecting services in this way. If you are a veteran of metal detecting and have experience with recoveries, please indicate that in your bio below.
