MEMBERSHIP

ORGANIZATION MEMBERSHIP: 

Membership in the Association shall be the national or multi-national gerontological and/or
geriatrics organizations (societies) with the exception as provided in Art. 7. To be eligible for
membership an organization (society) must:
a) be national in its scope and multidisciplinary in membership;

b) have a primary orientation toward research and teaching of gerontology and/or geriatrics;
c) have at least fifty members (in good standing) with exceptions determined by the Council. The
Council can then determine a minimum of ten members per society, given the current status of the
country;
d) be legally based upon the rules and customs of each country.

 

Membership in the Association will not be restricted to only one organization from a given country. A gerontological or geriatric organization that represents individuals from more than one country
may apply for membership in the Association. 
Individual members of national organizations which are in good standing in the Association are considered to be members of the Association. Member organizations are expected to make periodic reports to the Secretary-General on membership and activities. Such reports shall be required prior to the meeting of Council at Congresses of the Association.

HOW TO APPLY AS AN ORGANIZATION: 

A gerontological and/or geriatrics organization (society) may apply to the Secretary General of the Association for membership by submitting its By-Laws, a statement of its aims and goals, the names and addresses of its elected officers and the total number of its members, and all other requested information. The Secretary General shall submit all such documentary data to the Council for action. The organization (society) may be admitted to the Association at any time upon a majority of votes of the Council. 

CAN I APPLY AS AN INDIVIDUAL?

A professional person engaged in research, teaching (or practice) within the field of Gerontology and/or geriatrics may apply for individual membership in the Association provided that the said applicant is a national of a country which has no gerontological and/or geriatrics organization (society) which is a member-organization in the Association, and in which the applicant is eligible for membership. Individual members are expected to promote the development of gerontology and/or geriatrics in their countries and the formation of a national society eligible for application for membership in the Association. 

DUES: 

Each member organization shall pay each year to the Treasurer of the Association membership dues based on the size of its membership.
