EFORT is happy to inform you that the EFORT "member area" is now online on the EFORT Portal. This means that all the members of your society can now register individually as an EFORT European Fellow and profit from many advantages such as access to the EFORT scientific library, free online access to the EFORT Journal or 25 % discount on selected Springer books in Orthopaedics. The registration for all European Fellows is free of charge.
To cope with the many request we receive from international surgeons, we also would like to give fellows from outside of Europe the possibility to register with EFORT as an International Fellow. They will be granted the same benefits as the European Fellows. From 2011 on, however, the International Fellows will have to pay an annual membership fee.
Once the member area is fully implemented the benefits for both, European Fellows and International Fellows, will include a reduced congress registration fee and a reduced fee for the EFORT ATP. But this is still in process and – as mentioned – only applicable after the full implementation of the member area by mid 2011 at the latest. At the moment, also international fellows can register for free – as a promotion.
We now would like to invite you to spread the news among your members and encourage them to register as EFORT European Fellows on www.efort.org
. Once a username and password is created, the users can log on as European Fellow and profit from the benefits.
We trust that the new tool will make the EFORT portal even more attractive for your members and are happy to welcome your members as European Fellows of EFORT.
