Newborn Brain Society


Membership of the Newborn Brain Society

There are three types of membership within the Newborn Brain Society — General Members, General Members (LMIC) and Junior Members.

A General Member is a health care provider or member of the community interested in Neonatal Neurology. General Members have the right to vote in Newborn Brain Society elections, to hold office, and to secure fair consideration for governance appointments in the society. They are also invited to join all educational activities and have access to online resources.

A General Member (LMIC) is a person residing and working in a country with “low-income economy,” “lower-middle-income economy,” or “upper-middle-income economy” as defined by the World Bank’s most recent available data. For 2021, please see our page on eligible countries. General members (LMIC) must provide an institutional email, ID, and current CV, and eligibility will be verified. Once verified, General Members (LMIC) will be changed to active members, and will have all of the same benefits as General Members (hold office, vote, pay dues, join educational activities, etc).

A Junior Member is a person in a Training Program (e.g., medical or scientific training program). Junior members are invited to join all educational activities and have access to online resources. They do not vote, hold office, or pay dues. Junior Members will automatically transition from Junior to General Member status and will be assessed dues one year after completing training.
