The ALSGBI is a professional Association. Members are required to be honest, polite and professional at all times, including in email correspondence and at surgical meetings, not only to ALSGBI employees and delegates, but also to any 3rd parties such as venue reception staff. Each Member has a membership number which is personal and particular to them and is for their own online use only. We take our ethical, moral and legal responsibilities very seriously. Our environment welcomes people of all ethnic backgrounds, genders, sexual orientations, religions if any and discrimination in any form is not permitted. In particular we comply with the Equality Act 2010. Any member breaching these requirements in any way may be suspended or expelled.
As per section 10 of the Constitution, any member wishing to cancel their membership should email firstname.lastname@example.org, giving at least 3 months’ notice before the day when his/her subscription shall next be due. If no such notice is received the member shall be liable for the subscription for the ensuing year which shall be a debt due to and legally recoverable by the Association.
All membership fees are in GBP.
