Excited? Join us today in 1 easy step! 

Step 1: Register your contact and payment details here.

You'll need the email addresses of 2 Nominators who are current financial ASI members and able to support your membership application.
Please make sure you use their ASI-registered email address, as using a different one will delay your appilcation.

Your 2 Nominators will be contacted for approval - all they have to do is click 'YES'.  If they are not currently financial, we'll ask them to renew their membership so they can approve yours.  If they choose not to renew, they're prompted to let us know and you'll have the option of finding another Nominator to expedite your membership application.

When your application is finalised you will receive email confirmation.

See the 3 options below for how the time of joining affects your membership and the conditions you may wish to consider.

Option 1- Join at any time of the year

Join at any time of the year and pay the full (Ordinary or Student) membership fee.

  • This grants full membership for the year of joining.
  • Entitles the member to reduced registration costs for the ASI Annual Scientific Meeting.
  • This allows eligibility to apply for ASI opportunities including ASI International Travel Awards (provided other eligibility criteria are met) if membership is renewed prior to the 1st April the following year. For e.g. Full membership is paid in 2018, renewal is made in 2019 prior to 1st April 2019, allows eligibility for International Travel Award applications in 2019.

Option 2- Join during July 1st -Dec 31st

Join in the second half of the year and pay for an Interim Membership (50% discount off Ordinary or Student Membership).

  • This grants membership for the remainder of the year from the time of application.
  • Entitles the member to reduced registration costs for the ASI Annual Scientific Meeting.
  • This does not allow eligibility to apply for ASI opportunities including International Travel Awards the following year.
  • This option is only available to new (first time) members joining in the second half of the year, not for those who have been a member at any time in the past.
  • To apply the 50% discount in the second half of the year, please select the 'Interim' option.

Option 3- Join at the time of registering for the ASI Annual Scientific Meeting

Join ASI when registering for the Annual Scientific Meeting in December and pay full membership at that time.

  • This grants full membership for the year following the year of application
  • Entitles the member to reduced registration costs for the ASI Annual Scientific Meeting in the year of joining
  • This will not be counted as membership for the year of the meeting for purposes of travel awards etc. By way of example, if you were to join with the meeting registration in Dec 2019, you would receive discounted meeting registration for the 2019 meeting and full membership in 2020, and be eligible for ITA applications in 2021 providing you renewed your 2021 membership before 1 April 2021.
