Application & admission as National Member Society

Interested societies must have individual membership of clinicians, with or without other healthcare workers, with national coverage and a mandate that covers all aspects of gastroenterology, including gastrointestinal, hepatic, biliary and pancreatic disease. 

National Societies covering an individual, specialised aspect of gastroenterology, such as surgery, or radiology, or paediatrics only, are urged to contact the relevant UEG member organization representing that speciality in UEG (Ordinary Members).

Interested societies are asked to provide:

  • A completed membership application form
  • A copy of the society’s statutes (in English) (which must include established method of election of officers)
  • Composition of the governing board plus names and contact details of members
  • Number of full society members and evidence for the stated figure

and send to the UEG Secretariat

UEG would like to have an accurate account of membership figures per country. In case of 2 or more National Societies from the same country, names of individual members will be requested and checked by the UEG Secretariat, to eliminate double representation of individuals.  
Admission of new National Society members is decided by the Meeting of Members on the recommendation of the National Societies Committee (NSC) and Council. No reasons need to be given if an application is rejected.

Membership can be terminated only by the Meeting of Members, on the recommendation of the NSC and Council for unprofessional or unbecoming conduct, if the annual affiliation fee has not been paid for two consecutive years, when the existence of a National Society of gastroenterology can no longer be proved, or via request for termination from the member National Society itself. Remaining due membership fees up to the date of termination of membership will have to be paid.
