Membership Fees

AuSPEN is strengthening its partnership with ESPEN to bring you all the ESPEN member benefits from the time you join or renew your AuSPEN membership.

From July 2017, AuSPEN will transition to calendar year memberships to align with complimentary ESPEN membership. When you are invited to renew your AuSPEN membership for 2017-2018, you will be offered an 18-month AuSPEN membership to assist with this transition process.

From January 2018, AuSPEN membership will be based on a 12-month calendar year basis.

The transition to calendar year membership fees will occur in a two-stage approach:

    1. From 1 July 2017 members will be asked to renew their membership until 31 December 2018. If members renew or new members join between 1 July and 31 October 2017 they will be charged $375 for 18 months membership. It will be communicated to new members in this transition period that ESPEN membership is only included for the period 1 Jan 2018 – 31 Dec 2018.
    2. From 1 November 2017, AuSPEN membership will be from when the member joins to 31 December 2018 and will cost $280.

From 1 November 2018 and every year after, AuSPEN membership will commence from time of approval until 31 December (up to 13-month membership).

Student Membership

AuSPEN offers students enrolled in undergraduate and postgraduate studies or research programs a discounted 12-month student membership of $125.00.

Students may be students of any of AuSPEN’s core disciplines: Medicine, Surgery, Dietetics, Pharmacy and Nursing, or Postgraduate students with a research topic relevant to clinical nutrition.

Student membership option is available for full-time tertiary students enrolled at a university and studying towards their initial qualification in their profession/discipline (eg dietetics, nursing, medicine, pharmacy, science) and are not earning a health professional or scientist salary. This includes students completing undergraduate or entry-level Masters programs for the above listed health professions and science graduates engaged in full-time PhD or MSc (or equivalent).

Registered/accredited clinicians who are salary earners and who are undertaking part-time post-qualification studies are not eligible for the student membership rate.

Students are invited to renew their AuSPEN membership from July 1st 2017 for a 6-month membership period, then from November 2017, student membership will transition to an annual 12-month membership calendar year to align with ESPEN membership.

Evidence of student enrolment must be submitted to AuSPEN Secretary (admin@auspen.org.au) at time of joining or renewing AuSPEN membership.

Transfer of Membership

Transfers of membership from one individual to another is not possible as per the AuSPEN Constitution. This stipulates that all new applicants must be approved by AuSPEN Council at the next Council meeting and by the membership at large at the next Annual General Meeting. Transfer of membership bypasses this process and is hence disallowed by the Constitution of AuSPEN Society.
