Professional Memberships (Regular, Lifetime and Honorary)

Professional Membership is for any researcher, clinician or health care professional interested in ME/CFS activities. Professionals involved with legal issues or those involved with not-for-profit or government agencies related to ME/CFS are also welcome. All professional members are entitled to vote on all organizational matters that must be approved by the board of directors. For those applying to be a member, a membership committee will review each applicant and make a recommendation to the Board of Directors.

The annual fee for Regular Professional Membership is $125 with a 2 year Regular Professional Membership fee of $195. Professional members will be listed on the IACFS/ME website with accessibility to a directory consisting of other professional IACFS/ME members unless they specifically opt not to be listed.

Honorary professional members have been recognized for their special contributions to the battle against CFS by a two-thirds majority vote by the board of directors. No fee is required of honorary professional members.
