Individual membership

Individuals who reside in a country which does not have a national FENS member society can apply for individual membership and enjoy an extensive package of benefits.

Note: you cannot become an individual member of FENS if you reside in a country where there is a FENS society. You can check the full list of national member societies by visiting the membership section – if your national society is a member of FENS, please apply for membership through a FENS society instead.
