The EFI Membership Page
Membership of EFI is open to all workers in the field of
Immunogenetics and Histocompatibility. New Members need to be proposed
and seconded by two other EFI Members.
In 2005 there were 751 Members in 52 countries. There are
also EFI Members in a number of countries outside Europe. The annual membership
fee is presently 30 Euro. Members receive the quarterly EFI Newsletter
free of charge. EFI Members are eligible for a reduced registration fee
at the annual European Histocompatibility Conference and can apply for
bursaries to attend these conferences. It is also possible to apply for
educational bursaries to visit other laboratories. EFI Members are entitled
to participate and vote at the Annual General Assembly, where important
decisions are made.

Paying Your EFI Membership Fees
The 2007 membership fee is 30 Euro.

cards VISA, Mastercard and Carte Bleue. The payment server is run in
collaboration with Sogenactif, Societe Generale's secure payment server.

in you membership acceptance letter.
Some browsers and service providers now automatically block pop-up windows.
Please ensure that www.efiweb.org is added to your list of sites which
are permitted to open additional windows.
- Due to the excessive bank charges for cashing cheques
it is with regret that EFI can no longer accept payment of membership
fees by cheque.
- For people who are unable to pay their fees using the
on-line payment tool, it will be possible to pay EFI fees in cash during
the EFI annual meeting.
- Please note if you did not pay your subscription last
year and now wish to pay for both last year and this year, you will
have to make two separate payments using the web server. We suggest
that you make these payments on two separate days, and also email the
treasurer (Colette Raffoux) indicating
that you have paid your outstanding subscription in this manner.
