ISCB Multi Year and Lifetime Membership Categories

ISCB multi year and lifetime memberships offers As an alternative to the single year membership ISCB has always offered, we are now also offering the option of a multiple-year membership for up to 5 years from the date of registration, or a lifetime membership that will never expire. The following restrictions apply to the multi-year and lifetime membership categories:

  • Multi-year and lifetime membership categories are only available at the Professional level, and are offered among the registration options after selecting Professional as the membership category.
  • All the membership benefits of the one-year membership category apply to the multi-year and lifetime membership categories.
  • The ISCB will invoice additional charges in cases where a member moves from a country with low or middle income dues to a country with middle or high income dues, respectively. The according country list is available on the ISCB portal site based on the World Bank list of economies.
    • The additional membership fees will be calculated on a yearly pro rata base.
    • The ISCB will not refund fees for the reverse case where a member moves from a high or middle income dues country to a middle or lower income dues country, respectively.
    • A change in the economy classification of a country by the World Bank in a subsequent year will not result in a change in dues for the duration of existing multi-year or lifetime memberships.
  • The multi-year and lifetime memberships are non-refundable in the event of a membership cancellation at any time after purchase.
  • ISCB will cover costs in cases where the ISCB adds benefits to the general membership package (provided with the one-year membership) and which generate additional internal costs to the ISCB (e.g. additional sponsored journal subscriptions).

Multiple Year Membership Dues A person may become a multi-year member by making a single payment equivalent to the current one-year membership dues multiplied by the number of years (maximum 5 years):
 

2 year membership

Twice the current Professional level dues rate ($238 based on dues as of 2013 Feb 15)

5 year membership

Five times the current Professional level dues rate ($595 based on dues as of 2013 Feb 15)


Lifetime Membership Dues
A person may become a lifetime member by making a single payment of dues determined by age at the start of the membership registration or renewal according to the following schedule:
 

A. Age 60 or above

Five times the current Professional level dues rate (US$595 based on 2013 dues)

B. Age 50 or above

Ten times the current Professional level dues rate (US$1,190 based on 2013 dues)

C. Age 40 or above

Fifteen times the current regular professional level dues rate (US$1,785 based on 2013 dues)


A lifetime member is subsequently relieved of the obligation of paying dues, except in the case of movement from a lower income country to a higher income country, as noted above. The status and privileges are those of current Professional members.
