AS4SAN Changes Society Rules

At the 5th Annual Australasian Society for Social and Affective Neuroscience (AS4SAN) Conference members were presented with a series of proposed amendments to the Society rules. The main aims of the proposed rule changes were to:

  1. Allow the Society to be eligible to apply for a broader range of grants and funding schemes;

  2. Allow the Society to receive philanthropic donations;

  3. Align Society rules surrounding membership to better reflect current processes; and

  4. Minimise administrative processes relating to Society and Committee membership.

All proposed amendments were voted on and passed by attendees at the Annual General meeting.

The rules of the Society can be found HERE.
