Global Membership Initiative

The BCI Society wants to ensure that membership fees do not unduly restrict who is able to join our society.  We are pleased to introduce a reduced membership fees determined by the member’s country of residence. Determination is made by using tables listing low income, low-middle income and upper-middle income countries as defined by the World Bank. That is, low-income countries pay 20% of the full-member fee, lower-middle income countries pay 40% of the full-member fee, and upper-middle income countries pay 75% of the full-member fee.

Please note you must be based full-time in the applicable countries in order to be eligible for the discount. Please Contact Us  to receive the membership code.
