Full Members

Full Members


To qualify for full membership, a person must be endorsed by at least five full members to the President of the Board. They are required to demonstrate the importance of the candidate for full membership with respect to the work area of Parkinson's disease and related disorders. The President of the Board will introduce the candidate at the general meeting, at which time, full members will vote on admission to full membership. If a decision is taken to admit the candidate, the member shall be given Full Member status immediately and therefore be granted a voting right, and the status of Associate Member will end. There is a maximum of 150 Full Members. The membership of a Full Member ends after 10 years. After this period, Full Members will be given associate membership, including the right to be re-elected as Full Member.
