For many years now, it has been apparent that access to IAgrE membership for those living in low-income countries has become difficult at the rates charged for those working in the developed world. With the advent of electronic communications, the IAgrE is now able to offer a discounted package which could be attractive to those in less developed countries (LDCs).
The package offers memberships to people from those countries which the World Bank categorises as low-income, low-middle income and upper-middle income based on per capita income. The scheme is open only to nationals living and working in their home country. Membership will be conducted mainly by email. Thus the main reduction in benefit will be that routine postal mailings from IAgrE (such as Landwards) will not take place. Members will still receive full benefits including electronic access to Landwards and any other publications available electronically by logging in to the members' area of the IAgrE website.
The annual membership subscriptions under the scheme are based on the World Bank's income classifications and the cost will be £25 per annum for those living in Low, Lower-middle and Upper-middle income economies
Please note when applying for Associate Member, Member and Fellow grades of membership, along with the application form, you need to submit a current full and detailed CV which describes your work history and experience and copies of your academic certificates. Your application will then be reviewed and considered for these grades of membership.
Any Engineering Council/Society for the Environment registration fees or other fees related to membership such as interviews etc will still have to be paid at the full price.
You can apply for membership by completing our Application Form (Word / PDF) and by paying online using our sagepay page where you can add the relevant fee direct.
