【2016 Junior Member Registration: 】
 As defined in Part II of the Bylaws of the Society, Junior Membership is reserved for former Student Members who have lost their eligibility as of January 2014 or later, and is valid for up to five years after the loss of eligibility. It is a new membership category for which a Regular Member can make a recommendation, created to aid young postgraduate researchers.
 Special Note: You may have re-registered as a Student Member prior to January 2015, when you might lose your Student Member eligibility at the end of March 2015 due to graduation or program completion. In this case, you are still officially a Student Member until the end of December 2015. Therefore, you are eligible to apply for registration as a Junior Member for 2016.
