At the meeting held on 17 July 2019, the Royal Pharamceutical Society Assembly agreed that the following amendments to the Society’s Regulations will take effect from 1 October 2019. Any member who wishes to comment to the Assembly on the changes is asked to do so by 17 September 2019. Comments should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Following Assembly approval at the meeting held on 17 July 2019, the current requirement for all fee changes to be gazetted for 60 days will be removed. The headline fee rates payable for each year will continue to be published on the website and in The Pharmaceutical Journal, and amendments to these publicised to existing members in the run up to the renewal period, when members will, of course, have the option to pay the new annual fee or cancel their membership.
Regulation 2.3 will, therefore, be amended as follows:
fees and subscriptions for membership of the Society shall be fixed by the Assembly from time to time and shall be published on the Society’s website and annually in the Society’s journal. Any changes in fees and subscriptions must be ‘gazetted’ in draft for 60 days on the RPS website and in
The Pharmaceutical Journal
prior to adoption in order for representations from the Membership to be solicited. Any views, comments or objections received from the membership during this period will then be considered by the Assembly.’
