Honorary Members have the same rights and benefits as Members of The Society, but are not called upon to pay annual subscriptions. In addition, Honorary Members may also be eligible for free attendance at some Society meetings.

Proposals are sought, for assessment, by the Nominations Committee who will advise Council on formal nomination. The new Honorary Members are announced at the Annual General Meeting.

The Society is committed to increasing equality and diversity in the physiological sciences. Our work in this area permeates throughout all of our activities, and we would like to ask you to be mindful of this commitment when making your nomination for Honorary Membership.

Current Members and Honorary Members of The Society are encouraged to propose names at any time for the 2017 entry using the form below:
