Award of Life membership of the BMSS

Life membership of the British Mass Spectrometry Society is a prestigious award given to members of the Society who have made a significant contribution to the practice of mass spectrometry in the U.K. or, perhaps more importantly in this case, to the Society itself.

  • It is not the intention to give this award to members on reaching retirement age on an automatic basis and indeed most members of the Society will probably not satisfy the criteria.
  • It is expected that no more than two life memberships will be awarded in any year.
  • It is expected that those receiving the award will continue to maintain some involvement in the Society’s activities, e.g. continued attendance at meetings.

Life membership means just that, membership of the Society for the remainder of the member’s life. It does not include any other Society benefits, such as attendance at meetings or reduced subscription to journals, which would not also be free to other members of the Society.

Potential life membership is therefore to be considered for members of the Society reaching the end of their career in Mass Spectrometry who have attained a respected position within the U.K. mass spectrometry community. They should have been members of the Society for a significant part of their career and have made notable contributions to the Society. It is expected that such a person would have attended, and made regular scientific contributions at meetings sponsored by the Society throughout their career and have played a role in the organisation and running of some of those meetings.

Awards of life membership are made at the annual general meeting of the Society. Candidates for consideration as life members are proposed by a member of the Society and supported by at least two others. Each application is considered by the Advisory Board and Officers of the Society. Any award of life membership will be made at the annual general meeting of the Society.
