Honorary Membership is the highest honour the BSACI can bestow, recognising exceptional contributions at international level to the advancement of allergy & clinical immunology.
Honorary Membership is given to those who have never been a BSACI member. Nominees must be nominated by a BSACI member and cannot self-nominate. The guidance notes and nomination form can be downloaded here.
Completing the nomination form:
To nominate an individual, please complete the nomination form. Once completed, please email it to [email protected] by the end of May each year.
Case for nomination:
Please submit a maximum of 500 words outlining why you think the nominee deserves to be awarded Honorary Membership of BSACI.
The Trustees will assess nominees whose work shows evidence of having made a significant or sustained contribution to the international field of allergy and clinical immunology.
Examples include (but are not limited to):
a. Contributions that have helped allergy and clinical immunology services achieve better outcomes for patients or staff.
b. A personal impact which differs from those of any team or organisation where they work and where their outputs go beyond those of any role they are employed to play.
c. Exceptional contributions at international level to influence policy and practice.
d. Contributions to allergy and immunology which have directly impacted BSACI as a professional body in achieving its objectives or which have made a direct contribution to improving the working lives of professionals in allergy or clinical immunology related fields and their care of patients.
Honorary Members will be given a certificate signed by the BSACI President and will be added to the Honorary Members ‘Wall of Honour’. They will be granted free lifelong membership of the society. The names of those awarded Honorary membership (one per year) will be read out at the BSACI Annual Conference’ in the ‘Celebrating Excellent in Allergy Care & Research’ session.
