A person wishing to join the Society should submit his particulars on a prescribed form. Please click HERE for Application Form.

An applicant shall be considered a member only upon payment of the entrance fee (if applicable), and subscription.

The executive committee will decide on the application for membership and shall not be bound to give any reasons for refusal.

Membership fees are collected once every 2 years, at the start of a new term (e.g., in July 2023 for the term 2023-2025).

  • If a new membership application is received mid-term, the membership fees collected will be prorated accordingly (e.g., if application is received in 2024, the new member will pay the entrance fee and 1 year of membership fees, instead of 2 year of membership fees).
  • If an existing student member graduates from the post-graduate programme mid-term, a top up of the membership fees (from student to ordinary membership) will be collected upon his/her graduation (e.g., if a student member graduates in 2024, he/she will have to pay an additional $70 for the remaining term of 2024-2025 as he/she is now considered an ordinary member)

Membership fees are waived for absent, honorary or retired members.
