Your membership will run for a 12-month or a 36-month period (upon your choice) from the point you join our Association as a member or renew your membership. The Association, according to its statutes, can cancel the membership at any time on request by the member at issue, but does not refund, neither fully nor partially, any membership fees. Requests to cancel memberships during an ongoing membership period must be made to email@example.com.
If you wish to change your membership grade (i.e. full, student, low-middle income country) you can do this from your next renewal date only.
Your membership is only considered active once the membership fees have been paid.
After confirmation of your registration by the Association, refunds will not apply to any event/event type. You may transfer the registration into a colleague’s name, but must request this in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org at least three working days before the start of the event.
