    1.- ISTT Membership is annually based, from January through December. Therefore, irrespective of the date of registration within the year, all annual memberships will terminate on December 31st, and renewal will be requested starting next January 1st, until March 31st, of the following year.
    2.- Commercial organizations that wish to be associated with the ISTT may appoint one individual to represent them in the ISTT; this person will be a Corporate Member. Only one person from any organization may be a corporate member. Any other people from a commercial organization should apply as Technician/Student or Ordinary members, as appropriate. For all effects and purposes, corporate members shall have the same representational capacity as any ordinary or technician/student members of the Society.
    3.- A Technician/Student Member is someone who is working under the responsibility of another person, and thus is not responsible for a laboratory/service/unit, and who is either executing routine and/or specialised techniques or is pursuing a PhD or other degree. Note that Postdoctoral scientists are not eligible for Technician/Student membership.

    4.- Applicants for Technician/Student status must complete the PROOF-OF-STATUS form (PDF, WORD files) and send it to the ISTT via post, fax or, preferred, by email to ISTT. For those technician/student ISTT members willing to renew their ISTT Membership we only require an email sent to ISTT from their supervisor confirming that their labour situation remains the same as in the previous year and therefore they still qualify as technician/student members.

    5.- Retired or Emeritus status membership is available to all former ISTT members who have retired for work & would like to keep active within our society by monitoring the ISTT list, attending meetings or viewing or adding to material for "members only" by the ISTT. The ISTT emeritus membership is offered at no charge to retired members-- who naturally have a reduced income--just as many other bonuses & perks are offered by society to those retired. The ISTT expects integrity in any application for this level of membership. The initial application for the emeritus membership should be accompanied by a letter from the former supervisor stating that the member is indeed retired, or from another ISTT member in good standing who is knowledgeable about the applicant’s work status. Yearly renewal of emeritus membership is required, as some members may eventually wish to discontinue ties to ISTT over time. The initial application for emeritus status will be reviewed & validated by a majority of the board of directors.
