Persons who want to confirm their membership of the ABA must send their completed membership form (pdf version can be downloaded) to the secretariat (by Email, firstname.lastname@example.org). The latest available membership list is here.
ABA membership is free of cost, and members should use the renewal form. The fees from those who pay are used to help offset the postal costs of EJAIB, and are collected by Eubios Ethics Institute acting as a secretariat for ABA.
Membership fees are payable at any time in the year, including at the time of renewal to EJAIB, the official journal of ABA. A three tier system exists for annual fees:
a) Regular price (If by check: US$70 Euro 50 NZ$80 ¥4000 (or discount by Credit card price NZ$80) ). This includes the EJAIB journal subscription and free associate membership of Eubios Ethics Institute.
b) Reduced contribution (the amount is up to the member, and is also suggested for students). This may be negotiated to include the EJAIB journal subscription.
c) No fee, because the person is not in a position to pay the fee. This does not include a hard copy of the EJAIB journal, but anyone can apply to Eubios Ethics Institute separately for a hard copy of the Journal, to be considered case by case.
Please email your ABA membership renewal form to email@example.com
Donations to the Eubios Fund to support young scholars for Asian bioethics activities are also welcomed.
The ABA logo was adopted by voting between ten different logos during November-December 2014. Thanks to all the entries and members who voted, and improved the initial entries.
