Applying for membership: Prospective members who need a proposer

We recognise that not all prospective members will be in contact with Members of The Society. This particularly applies to people who are working in developing countries, for example.

We aim to assist you in finding a suitable proposer for your membership application. Please use the webform to provide the information we require and upload a copy of your CV including publications and details of referees.

Upon receipt we will search for a suitable proposer and provide them with your CV. If they are able to propose you for membership, we will provide their membership ID and email address to you by email as soon as is practicable. You can then use this information to apply for membership of The Society, which is a separate process.

Should you have further queries, please contact us at


Please indicate the type of membership for which you would like to apply:
