RMS welcomes more than 100 new members during early 2024

The RMS enjoyed a booming start to 2024, with 107 new members joining the Society during the first three months.

While the majority of new members are based in the UK, 19 per cent joined from overseas countries – confirming the Society’s status as a truly international organisation.

No fewer than 14 countries across five different continents were represent among our new members (see table below). All membership categories – from Students and Early Career members to ‘ordinary’ and ‘Emeritus’ members were also represented among our latest intake.

RMS Chief Executive Sali Davis said: “Like many Societies, the future of the RMS will always depend on its ability to attract new members, and to continue delivering the kind of benefits and opportunities that they want to see.

“It has been really exciting to welcome so many new members so far in 2024, and naturally, we want to ensure that trend continues in the future. The RMS is for the whole of the  microscopy, imaging and flow cytometry community, and as a genuinely international society, it is particularly pleasing to welcome new members from right across the globe. 

“A thriving Society requires the widest and most diverse possible representation, in order to ensure we can be in tune with the latest trends, challenges and talking points across our international community.”
