EMGS membership can be obtained by creating an account and paying your membership dues online. If you cannot, or do not wish to pay online, you can download the dues forms in Adobe Acrobat format (PDF files) below. Membership is based on the calendar year of January 1–December 31.

EMGS has 5 types of individual membership available.

  • Regular Members The membership of the Society shall consist of scientists and other persons who share an interest in the purposes of the Society.

  • Emeritus Members Any member who has reached the age of 65 and has retired and who has paid annual dues for at least ten (10) years total may request Emeritus status by submitting a letter of request to the Membership Committee Chairperson for review and approval by the Executive Board. (Amended 2005). Emeritus members vote in Society elections and receive Society mailings and may pay a nominal fee for membership dues. They are not entitled to receive the Society journal.

  • Student/Trainee Members Persons engaged in formal study in a field represented by EMGS may select student/trainee membership status by providing proof of status as student/trainee each year. A Student/Trainee Member may vote but not hold office.

  • New Investigator Members The New Investigator category will be available to individuals with newly-awarded terminal degrees (e.g., PhD’s, ScD’s, MD’s or DVM’s) for a maximum of five years following the date of receipt of the degree. The date (or anticipated date) of receipt of degree must be provided when enrolling as a Society member in the New Investigator category. New Investigators will have all the benefits of Society members. The membership fee will be fixed at the rate provided to students with Journal.

  • Regular Partner Members

  • Sustaining Members The Society recognizes the value of industrial corporate support. An annual contribution to the Society, as determined by Council or the Executive Board, qualifies the contributor for the status of Sustaining Member. Although this class of membership does not provide privileges, a listing of Sustaining Members will be included in the Program of each Annual Meeting, on the EMGS website and at least once a year in the Society Newsletter.
