Regular membership of the Australian Pain Society is normally open to Health Professionals or Researchers working or interested in the field of Pain Medicine. Regular Members should have a tertiary qualification. Applications will be assessed by the membership sub-committee of the APS.
Student membership is normally open to bona fide full time undergraduate students over the age of seventeen years whose course will lead to professional qualifications that might lead them to take up regular membership.
Any company that has a real and substantial interest in the objectives of the Society and satisfies any other criteria established in the by-laws. A company that is a corporate member will be given recognition in the Society's newsletters and official programs and will be able to display at local meetings.
Retiree membership is available to members who are fully retired yet maintain an interest in staying involved with the society.
Affiliate membership is open to those individuals who have a real and substantial interest in the objectives of the Society and satisfy such other criteria established in the by-laws. Generally this membership will be for those who do not satisfy the criteria for regular membership and/or become provisional affiliate members when registering to attend an annual scientific meeting. Provisional affiliate membership expires on 31 December each year and is not entitled to the full list of member benefits.
Only financial, regular members have the right to vote at ordinary, annual or special meetings of the society, may hold official positions within the society, join society special interest groups and be able to propose or second any class of new member.
