New membership structure

The Royal Society of New Zealand has recently (October 2016) changed its membership structure, and updated its General Rules. The new membership structure is now in effect. Find details online:

Current Members

All current Members have been contacted directly about the new structure, and the options available to them. Up-to-date information about the transition to the new structure – including a timeline, what’s changed, the benefits for Members, and action required – can be found on the Membership Transition page.

New Members

PLEASE NOTE: During the current transition to the new structure we are not accepting new membership applications.

Membership applications will reopen in January 2017, with the launch of our new online join portal.
