Announcement: New reduced membership rate
To make the ACGS more accessible to our technologist colleagues

launched at the Genetic Technologist Study Day 29th April 2016 in
Please see the top right of this page for a downloadable
flyer with more details.
Applicants should apply online via the link above and
select ACGS Band 5 and below membership. Please can applicants
also email a copy of their pay slip or a letter from their Head of
Laboratory confirming pay band to the BSGM office email@example.com
Existing members should email David Cockburn firstname.lastname@example.org with a
copy of their pay slip or letter from head of laboratory to arrange
a reduction in fees from 2016/2017 only.
Announcement: membership fees for trainees
With the launch of the band 5 £20 membership rate for ACGS, it
has come to our attention that some trainees (on band 6) have paid
for 2016/17 membership at a £20 rate already - which was mistakenly
advertised on the BSGM website.
We wish to apologise for any confusion, but there is no
reduction in fees available except for those on band 5 or
below. The BSGM
website has now been corrected.
It has been decided that those fortunate trainees who have
already processed payments at the £20 rate will not be surcharged,
but they should note that they will be required to pay the full
rate next year.
