Membership

Any professional who is involved in research, teaching and/or public service and whose activities are related to the study of tularemia is eligible for membership provided that he/she supports the goals and objectives of the Society as set forth in the Terms of Reference and By-Laws. In addition, any graduate or undergraduate student who is involved in advanced training in any area related to the study of tularemia is eligible for student membership.
The Society shall consist of four types of members: regular, student, special, and emeritus.

Membership Types

Regular Member

Any professional who is involved in research, teaching and/or public service and whose activities are related to the study of tularaemia is eligible for membership provided that he/she supports the goals and objectives of the Society as set forth in the Terms of Reference and By-Laws. Regular members may vote and hold office in the Society.

Student Member

Any graduate or undergraduate student who is involved in advanced training in any area related to the study of tularemia is eligible for student membership. The application form and each annual dues form must be signed by the student’s advisor or department head. Student membership requires that mentors or sponsors are active members of TULISOC. Student membership shall terminate at the end of the calendar year in which student status terminates, at which time such individuals become eligible for regular membership according to the same criteria and procedures that apply to other scientists. Student membership dues will be at a reduced rate to be determined by the Executive Committee. Student members may not vote or hold office.

Emeritus Member

Regular and Special members who are retired from their primary positions may apply for Emeritus membership. Emeritus members enjoy the same privileges accorded to regular members but are not required to pay dues.

Special Member

Scientists qualified for regular membership but unable, owing to economic or political conditions in their countries of residence, to pay regular dues. Applications for this category of membership shall be judged by the Executive Committee on a case-by-case basis, with respect to published lists of developing and economically disadvantaged nations. Dues of Special Members may be paid on a voluntary basis by other members of TULISOC, or may be waived by the Executive Committee. Special members may vote and hold office in the Society.

Dues and Benefits for Members

The Executive Committee shall set the annual dues of members. Membership is based on a calendar year and dues are paid for the forthcoming year. Dues not paid by April 1st of the current year are considered delinquent and members will forfeit their membership unless all dues owed are paid by that date. Delinquent members will be notified in writing before their memberships are terminated.
Members of TULISOC will benefit from a discount on registration fees for Tularemia conferences organised by the Society.
