The new membership process: a guide to the updates

In response to the fast-paced environment that characterizes our world, we introduce modifications to our membership application processeffective from January 2024.

This adjustment is aimed at ensuring the integrity of the EAS community by aligning with the highest standards of scientific credibility.

To achieve this, all applicants, both new and existing individual members, are required to submit two documents verifying their eligibility based on the criteria outlined in our bylaws.

We kindly request to submit two of the following documents:

· CV

· Scientific article authored by the applicant

· Letter showing applicant’s status of employment or study

· Letter of recommendation from an existing EAS individual member

· Congress abstract or similar presented by the applicant

If you are an existing EAS member, you will receive an email notification when your membership is due for renewal.

Additionally, as we expand our portfolio of benefits and educational activities, we recognize the need to adjust our membership fees to sustain the quality of services provided.

The current fees, established in 2009, have increased:

– from €40 to €60 for individuals over 35 years old

– from €20 to €30 for individuals aged 35 and younger

EAS has designed membership packages that not only provide excellent value but also frequently offer individual benefits that are more costly when acquired independently. We believe these fees are reasonable considering the extensive range of activities we offer and plan to provide in the future.

Your understanding and support as we navigate these changes together are greatly appreciated. We are confident that everyone will benefit from these changes.
