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. In order to continue as members of the Newborn Brain Society, Junior members will need to transition to General members one year after completing their training to continue their membership. 

Benefits of Membership:

  • Access to member-only online resources
  • Nomination to any of the standing committees
  • Discounts on select scientific conferences
  • Voting privileges (General Members and General Members (LMIC) Only)


Annual dues for General membership is $100 /year and for General membership (LMIC) is $25 /year

We welcome members of the business community to participate in public offerings of the NBS, although those with conflicts of interest with the NBS may not become members or hold office within the society.

NBS reserves the right to withhold or revoke membership for perceived conflict of interest. All decisions regarding membership and potential/perceived conflicts of interest are subject to review by the NBS Board of Directors.
