Becoming A Member
Education organisations and suppliers wishing to join FOBISIA are requested to contact a member of the Board or the Chief Operating Officer at FOBISIA HQ to express their interest in becoming a member.
Should they wish to join as an Affiliate Member, FOBISIA will supply a Affiliate Membership Pack, including:
- an Affiliate Membership Introduction Letter
- an Affiliate Membership Application Form
- the Code of Conduct for Affiliate Membership
Applicants must successfully complete the Affiliate Membership Application Form for review by the Board via the Membership Committee. Once they join FOBISIA, Affiliate Members must continue to satisfy a range of FOBISIA standards around professional conduct.
Once it receives a School Membership Application, FOBISIA HQ provides written acknowledgement of receipt of the application and seeks two references from the referees provided in the application. Once the application is complete with references and a signed Code of Conduct, the FOBISIA Board, through its Membership Committee, determines if the application is approved. The Affiliate Membership Application must demonstrate the Applicant's relevance and commitment to FOBISIA, including competance in supporting the activities and purpose of its Member Schools.
Sucessful Applicants are admitted as Affiliate Members once their Annual Affiliate Membership Fees have been paid, at which time they are entitled to their annual membership benefits.
