Message from the BASEM President, Mr Graham Holloway

Dear members,

I am pleased to inform you that at the AGM last Thursday, there was an overwhelming vote FOR Special Resolution 1. So, the previous Associate Member category will now cease and those members will become Full Members. This is not something new, but a reversion to the status pre 2003 when the Associate Member category was introduced.

The new membership fees and a full explanation and instruction on how to apply for the concessionary fees will be available on the website and effective from the 1st of November for new members and from the date of renewal for current members. The new Annual Membership Fees will be:-

Full members  - £195

Retired members  - £50 

Overseas members  - £100 

Undergraduate members  - £25 

Concessionary rate of - £100.  This will be for Foundation year doctors, newly qualified allied healthcare practitioners, full time Postgraduate SEM students and SEM trainees at the discretion of the Executive Board.

May I thank all the members who responded to my pre AGM letter and those who voted at the AGM. Please remember that the Executive Committee is elected by the members to fulfill the objectives of the Association. If you have any queries, suggestions or you want to help your Association in any way please contact one of us. May I wish each and every member a happy and fulfilling career and I look forward to your continuing membership.

Yours sincerely


Graham Holloway, BASEM President
