Membership of The Micropalaeontological Society is open to anyone. The TMS Constitution and Rules, which set out the Society’s aims and objectives, can be found here.
Membership subscription covers the calendar year from the 1st of January to the 31st of December, with renewal due on the 1st of January each year.
There are two main membership types: Full (£35), and Student/Retired (£20). Note that the Student rate can be applied for the next two years following the end of your last degree. In addition, Honorary Membership is offered to those individuals who have made an outstanding and sustained contribution to the Society. Honorary Members receive all the benefits of normal membership of the Society free of charge for life. If you live in a country classified as low / lower-middle income (following the World Bank classification, please check the document below), you are eligible for free membership rates.
