I would like to become a member of the CPBS society what do I need to do?
Membership is an application process and can be applied for online and by paper application. All applications are ratified by the CPBS council at scheduled council meetings throughout the year. Membership rate does not apply until the membership application has been ratified by council.
Our membership runs for the calendar year January to December. For more information on membership rules and regulations please see section 7 of the articles of association. https://cpbs.ie/governence/articles-of-association/
What is a voting member?
Only memberships (new applications or renewals) received before the 1st March will have voting rights (council elections, voting at AGM).
Can I pay my membership by direct debit?
No. We do not accept direct debit payments. All members can renew online, or via post by sending euro cheques, cash, postal orders and bank drafts. Bank transfers are not accepted.
My membership has lapsed what happens now?
At present we can only accept membership payments for the current year.
If you didn’t manage to renew before the 1st of March you can still become a member by resubmitting an application any time during the year. This will go through the same process as a new application and will give you a new membership number.
When is the next council meeting to ratify memberships?
Please check out our events page for scheduled dates. Council meetings are normally scheduled for the first Tuesday in every month. These can change at short notice due to unforeseen circumstances. All memberships will then be ratified at the next council sitting.
