How to become a member?
If you are interested in applying to become a SOSORT member we are grateful for your interest!
SOSORT, like many other scientific societies, has mandated certain requirements that each applicant must attain to be considered for membership. You must be a professional dedicated to scoliosis conservative treatment and share and respect the SOSORT recommendations for scoliosis treatment. In addition to be eligible for membership to the society you must have attended at least one SOSORT meeting prior
Our membership committee will then evaluate your application.
Applications for new members deadline is on the same day and abstract submission deadline.
If you apply after this deadline, you will be accepted as provisional member, because the committee will need more time to evaluate your position. You'll be voted the next year during the meeting. Please note that to be voted you do not need to be present at that meeting. You need to have already been in a SOSORT meeting before you apply or before being voted by the assembly of SOSORT members.
We look forward to your application.
The SOSORT Membership Committee.
To maintain membership, each Member has to pay an annual fee to support the Society. The fee is 100 euros; they were not included in the SOSORT meeting fees. You can pay with credit card, PayPal or at the following bank account:
Bank Account: International Society on Scoliosis Orthopaedic and Rehabilitation Treatment
