Terms and Conditions

Application for membership

Please follow the instructions found on the Membership Application page. Please ensure that you have viewed the Membership Fees and have read these terms and conditions. By applying for UKI NETS membership, it is assumed that you have read the Memorandum & Articles of Association and the Byelaws.

Membership

The membership year runs from 1st January to 31st December. Applicants will be expected to pay the full year’s membership fee in their first year, regardless of when their application is approved. The membership fee will not be reduced on a pro-rata basis. If you apply for membership during the period 1 September to 31 December, your membership payment will cover the remainder of that year and all of the following year. However, you will only receive journals for the following membership year.

Membership renewal notices will be sent approximately 1 month before the start of the membership year and as an UKI NETS member, you are expected to ensure that payment is made promptly.

Members who have not paid the membership fee will not be entitled to vote at the UKI NETS Annual General Meeting. If you wish to vote at the UKI NETS Annual General Meeting, you must pay your membership fee.

Members who have not paid their membership fee after a few reminders will be deemed as lapsed members and will not receive the newsletter, journal, mailings and discounted registration to the UKI NETS Conference, nor enjoy access to the members’ section of the website.

Members who have not paid their membership fee for two years or more must either re-apply for membership or pay all fees due since their last membership fee payment.
