The Membership Committee:

  • provides staff with support implementing membership policy and the development of policy for the functions of the Committee
  • reviews non-standard membership applications
  • administers the Conduct Scheme, including assessing the validity of complaints 
  • hears appeals and prescribes appropriate and proportionate resolutions in accordance with the Laws of The Society
  • oversees, and reports to the Assembly on, the admission of Fellows into the membership category of the Society via the Panel of Fellows, which acts as a sub-group to the Membership Committee

When determining the outcome of any application or membership referred to it, the Membership Committee considers:

  • each individual case and the circumstances of the removal from the register and/or adverse disciplinary decision
  • the past history of the applicant/member
  • the reputation of the profession and of the Society
  • any other representations that the applicant/member may wish to make in writing to the committee
  • if membership could provide support and guidance to the applicant in seeking re-admission to the register.
