MeCCSA operates a system of institutional or individual membership as outlined on the below pages, where you can also apply for membership.
If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact our membership secretary, Gillian Mason.
The membership period runs from 1 September through 31 August each year. New membership applications and payments that are received on or after 1 May of any year will be applied toward the following membership period.
COVID-19 UPDATE: The Covid-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on all our lives and working practices and MeCCSA is no exception, with all Association activities such as Exec Committee meetings, supporting Network activities and publishing Three-D, now taking place online. In recognising that the postponement of the annual conference to January 2022 means that one of the major membership benefits (reduced conference registration fees) is not possible for the upcoming year (Sept 2020-August 2021), we are reducing membership renewal fees by 50% for 2020-21: they will revert back to the normal rate for 2021-2022. Although the MeCCSA annual conference will not be taking place in person in January 2021, we will nonetheless be running elections for the MeCCSA Executive Committee and undertaking the AGM online: in order to participate in either/both activities, individuals need to be current MeCCSA members or belong to HEIs which have a current institutional membership at the time of voting, hence the importance of maintaining membership.
Open to people working in the field whose institutions are not members. Concessionary individual membership rates are available for part time staff, postgraduate students and overseas members.
All employees and postgraduate students of a member institution shall be able to attend conference at a reduced rate, receive the newsletter and subscribe to the jiscmail discussion lists. UK institutions shall put forward 5, 10 or 15 named members for voting purposes depending on their subscription rate.
Offered to organisations in the field who do not qualify for full Institutional membership.
