“Members in good standing” defined
Member in Good Standing
Member in good standing is the status assigned to a Member of the ISE when he or she has remained current on Society dues (or applications for due waivers) which cover a 24-month period. Being a Member in good standing affirms the Member’s commitment to the vision of the ISE, reflected in its Code of Ethics, to which all members are bound, and to the ISE Constitution and other ISE policies. It is expected that members in good standing will work collaboratively to strengthen the Society and will not engage in any activities that put the ISE in financial or structural jeopardy, nor engage in any activities that will bring discredit to the Society.
Members in good standing:
- are eligible to participate in all meetings, congresses, courses, committee memberships of and in relation to the ISE;
- are eligible to apply for ISE awards and fellowships;
- are eligible to be elected to Executive Board positions, provided that they have attended at least two ISE biennial congresses* prior to their nomination;
- are eligible to be elected or appointed to Regional and Student Representative positions, provided that they have attended at least one ISE biennial congress* prior to their nomination;
- are eligible to be appointed to the ISE Board as Co-Director of the Global Coalition, Co-Chair of the Ethics Program, or Co-Chair of the Darrell Posey Fellowship Program;
- have the right to exercise one vote online or in person and, in the case of institutions or corporations, an authorized representative, on each vote taken during Ordinary and Extraordinary General Assemblies.
New Members of the ISE are eligible to vote immediately after applying for membership and payment of dues.
*Attendance of ISE workshops and/or regional conferences does not count towards meeting the requirement of attendance of biennial congresses.
