Joining ANZSOM:

Membership and Nominations

If you would like to become a Member, either Ordinary (Doctor) or Associate (Non-Doctor), you will need to be nominated. Have your nominator fill out the application form below and send it through to our Secretary, secretary@anzsom.org.nz

The Nomination forms can be filled-in online, using Google Chrome and Internet Explorer. Firefox should be compatible, provided you first go into Firefox’s Options – Applications, and choose for Adobe Acrobat Forms to “Use Adobe Acrobat (in Firefox)”.

The form should be saved as a PDF and then sent to our Secretary, secretary@anzsom.org.nz See the form for further instructions.

AFTER NOMINATION

Once your Nomination is approved you will be given access to an online membership Activation form, and an email notifying you of this will advise you of a temporary Password. At that time you will also need to pay the subscription fee for the coming year (unless this was already included in your Registration Fee for our annual conference).

The current fee is $150 for Ordinary Member and $75 for Associate Member. When we receive this fee, your User status will be upgraded to Current Member, giving you access to the Members-Only web pages and other benefits. Your membership will be until 31 December of the year as listed in the heading of the membership Activation form that you completed.

MEMBERSHIP ACTIVATION FORM

Your membership Activation form helps us to update the Members’ Directory (confidential to members), so don’t forget it or your name may appear there without any other details.

 

WHAT NEXT?

After you send the form you will receive an automated acknowledgement (as will the Committee). Once payment is received, your status as a website user will be updated to being a Current User. Your membership will be current until 31 December of the year displayed on the Form you completed. If you fail to pay a new subscription within one month of being asked to do so, you become a Lapsed member.

 

PRIVACY

On the form, certain Privacy Options relate to how your details will appear in the Members’ Directory. This Directory is only visible online to current Members. You can choose whether your work and/or private contact details, your Preferred Email, or just your name will display. Your postal address will not be included in the Directory, and is only for Committee use in case your other contact details fail.
