In exceptional cases, ISAE council may award free membership to academics in countries or from institutes who cannot afford the normal membership rate. The Membership Secretary can inform you about terms & conditions.
ISAE also offers Corporate Membership, which entitles an approved organisation to receive information normally distributed to members and to send two representatives to ISAE meetings under the same terms as ordinary members. Corporate Member representatives have no power to vote and cannot hold a position on Council. Corporate Membership does not entitle organisations to reduced-rate subscriptions to Applied Animal Behaviour Science. The Corporate Membership fee is currently £100 per year.
