Dear IPHS delegate,
Further to a communication in the 2014 annual IPHS symposium booklet, and following a committee review, we have decided that the compulsory, annual, IPHS membership fee will be abolished with immediate effect. Rather, a fixed amount will be charged on entry to the annual symposium, to be paid by each delegate (excepting FOC entry as part of the trade sponsorship packages).
Cancellation of the membership fee is the responsibility of you, the payee, however we would urge continuation of payment in order to help fund the student bursary awards, granted each year to students conducting research in an area of particular interest to the Irish pig industry.
Many thanks for your cooperation.
Allison Kirwan MVB CertPM MRCVS
IPHS President (2014 + 2015)
