How to become a Member

List of Members (Log in to the members area for more information)

Applications for membership are considered by the BHS Executive Committee throughout the year. Prospective new members should submit the following documents to the Secretary:

  • Application form, to include:
    • Supporting paragraphs from two members of the Society (you may refer to the list of members or contact Jackie Howarth at bhs@le.ac.uk who will be pleased to help)
    • Confirmation of student status (for Associate Membership applications only)
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Full list of publications or information on your audit and/or research experience

Once the application has been approved by the Executive Committee, the applicant will be invited to join the Society. Membership will begin upon receipt of the annual membership fee, which will be adjusted pro rata for the first year, depending how much of that first calendar year remains.

Please note that only those who are accepted into membership and have paid their annual subscription by the 15th July will be eligible for the reduced member registration rate at the Annual Scientific Meeting in September. Applications received after this time will be considered by the Executive Committee at the September meeting, but the applicant will have to register for the meeting at the non-member rate.
