(extract of the ICEASI by laws related to Full Membership)
Full members are national originations, non profit, legal by their national law and consisting of therapists who have a recognized state-registered qualification to practice as Occupational Therapist, Physiotherapist or Speech and Language Pathologist. A country can be represented by more than one national society, but there will be only one vote per country.
Each full member retains its own autonomy.
A society or person that wants a full membership or individual membership must apply in writing to the Secretary-general of ICEASI who will present their candidacy to the Council of ICEASI, which will decide to accept or reject the request. The written application for a desired full membership has to be accompanied with the by-laws of the relevant society showing that they submit and agree to the purpose and objectives of the ICEASI.
Each year a full member must produce a registry of the members of their Society to the Secretary-general of ICEASI.
At the beginning of the financial year each full member will send the number of its Association members to the Treasurer.
Each year a full member has to pay an annual fee to the Treasurer. The amount of the annual fee will be determined by the Council of ICEASI, based on membership number. After one year lapse of payment a full member will lose voting power, until payment has been updated.
(extract of the ICEASI by laws related to Individual Membership)
Individual members are Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapist or Speech and Language Pathologist from countries who are not yet able to form a national society, legal by their national law.
Each year an individual member has to pay an annual fee to the Treasurer. The amount of the annual fee will be determined by the Council of ICEASI.
Individual members will have one (1) representative seat on the Council with voting power. It will be the responsibility of individual members to vote between themselves who will be representing them on the Council for a specific term of office. The individual voted to have a seat on the Council may not be from a country who has full member/s. (all of them can be present at meetings but only 1 can vote)
