Professional Memberships (Regular, Lifetime and Honorary)

Professional Membership is for any researcher, clinician or health care professional interested in ME/CFS activities. Professionals involved with legal issues or those involved with not-for-profit or government agencies related to ME/CFS are also welcome. All professional members are entitled to vote on all organizational matters that must be approved by the board of directors. For those applying to be a member, a membership committee will review each applicant and make a recommendation to the Board of Directors.
