Renewing your membership?

If you are a current member and would like to renew your membership, this service is not currently available. This is because there are a number of phased changes and improvements  to the Nutrition Society’s website planned over the next few months.  The first phase of this is a new database.  The migration of existing data to the new database is now reaching its final stages, ready for launch in early May. This data is currently managed for the Society by Cambridge University Press. In future this will be securely hosted and managed by the Nutrition Society. As this migration has been taking place over the past few months it has overlapped the traditional renewal period for the Society’s annual memberships. It was agreed that the best way to avoid inconveniencing members during this period, was by extending the 2015/16 membership year until at least 30 April 2016. As a result, no renewal notices will be sent to members until mid May 2016 and membership will still be valid until this email is sent. All memberships from now on, will be on a rolling year basis, and not on a calendar year, as previously.  Please look out for your renewal email or further information during May. 


If you have any queries with regards to the application process, please contact the Nutrition Society Membership team.
