FEE: There is a one-time entrance fee of US$100.

The fee structure, as agreed by IUFoST voting delegates, is based on three bands, represented as follows:

“The bands are constructed in multiples of the lowest figure, established at US$350, representing no change from the lowest dues currently paid.

The top of the third band is US$10,500, representing the highest amount of dues paid.

The total number of votes an Adhering Body would have is three, corresponding to the three bands within the dues structure. The three bands correspond with low, middle and high income countries, and the scale within each band allows for the addition of population and GHI indicators in scale point from 1-14.

Band 1                       Band 2                          Band 3

$350-$700                $1050-$2100                 $4200-10,500

This system corresponds to ISC (International Science Council) practices for their membership and is also implemented by other Unions, including the IUFoST sister union, International Union of Nutritional Sciences (IUNS).
