Please follow the instructions found on the Membership Application page and please ensure that you have viewed the Membership Fees.
The ESPE membership year runs from 1st January to 31st December.
Applicants will be expected to pay the full year's membership fee in their first year, regardless of when their application is approved. The membership fee will not be reduced on a pro-rata basis.
Membership renewal notices will be sent approximately 1 month before the start of the membership year and as an ESPE member, you are expected to ensure that payment is made promptly.
Members who have not paid the membership fee will not be entitled to vote at the ESPE Annual Business Meeting.
Members who have not paid their membership fee after a few reminders will be deemed as lapsed members and will not receive the newsletter, journal, mailings and discounted registration to the ESPE Annual Scientific Meeting, nor enjoy access to the members' section of the ESPE website.
Lapsed members who wish to renew their membership within two years of lapsing must pay all fees due since their last membership payment or they can re-apply for membership after two years.
