Items 4 & 5: Nomination of Honorary Officers and Executive Committee:

Only full members of the Ménière’s Society, whether individual or representative, are eligible to serve as Honorary Officers or members of the Executive Committee. Members can nominate any eligible person as a Trustee or Officer. Nominations for Honorary Officers or additional members of the Committee must be made by full members of the Society in writing and with the consent of the nominee. Nomination papers will be sent on request and must be received by the Ménière’s Society at least 28 days before the AGM; signed by both nominee and proposer.

Item 7: Ratification of individual membership subscriptions

Following a review of the membership, the Trustees are seeking ratification of the change to membership subscriptions (previously £20 for new members; £16 for renewals and £24 for international members) to £23 for print membership and £20 for online membership from May 2021. An additional £8 postage will also be added to the print membership fee for international members. This reflects recent increases in printing and postage costs to the Society, as well as the option to receive information online via the new website; which has been requested by members for some time. The membership subscription rate has not been changed since 2017 and the renewal rate has been not amended in over 12 years. We hope you will still consider the membership subscription good value. If you would like to make any comments or have any questions about the subscriptions, please get in contact.
