Multiyear Membership

APBioNET multi-year and lifetime memberships will offer an alternative to the single year membership that APBioNET has always offered. We propose to offer the option of a multiple-year membership for up to 5 years from the date of registration, or a lifetime membership that will never expire.

A person may become a multi-year member by making a single payment equivalent to the current one-year membership due, multiplied by the number of years (up to a maximum of 5 years): 

2-year membership:

Twice the current Student*/General membership due rate (whichever applicable) and a 5% discount 

3-year membership:

Three times the current Student*/General membership due rate (whichever applicable) due rate and a 10% discount

4-year membership:

Four times the current Student*/General membership due rate (whichever applicable) due rate and a 15% discount 

5-year membership:

Five times the current Student*/General membership due rate (whichever applicable) due rate and a 20% discount

* Students would need to provide a proof of studentship for the duration of the period selected.

Lifelong Membership

Lifetime Membership Dues

A person may become a lifetime member by making a single payment of dues determined by age at the start of the membership registration or renewal according to the following schedule:

  • A. Age 60 or above (Five times the current General membership due rate)
  • B. Age 50 or above (Ten times the current General membership due rate)
  • C. Age 40 or above (Twenty times the current General membership due rate)

The option is not available for the Student Membership category.

The General membership due is as per the economic tier of the country at which the individual is residing at the point of time of registration.

Upon successful registration, a lifetime member is subsequently relieved of the obligation of paying dues.

General Terms and conditions

  • The following restrictions apply to the multi-year and lifetime membership categories:
  • All the membership benefits of the one-year membership category apply to the multi-year and lifetime membership categories.
  • A change in the economy classification of a country by the World Bank in a subsequent year will not result in a change in dues for the duration of existing multi-year or lifetime memberships.
    The multi-year and lifetime memberships are non-refundable in the event of a membership cancellation at any time after purchase.
