Jun 2015. The International Implementation Organization for the IGSN (IGSN e.V.) invites applications for new members before its next vote in Fall 2015. The IGSN Implementation Organization operates the international IGSN registration service, and implements and promotes standard methods to locate, identify, and cite physical samples with confidence.
Membership in the IGSN Implementation Organization is open to organizations who wish to run their own IGSN allocating service. Organizations who have an interest in the purpose and objectives of the IGSN Implementation Organization (but do not plan to become an IGSN allocating agent) are welcome as Affiliate Members with an advisory function and the right to attend the General Assembly. The amount and due date of annual membership fees will be determined by the General Assembly. The membership fee is currently 500 euros per year.
Membership applications are due by August 1, 2015, to allow time for review before the next vote, but contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have plans to apply and need more time.
