Members approve biggest change to IOP’s membership in more than 60 years

In May we proposed a number of changes to our membership structure and fee model prior to the 2017 IOP Annual General Meeting (AGM), which took place yesterday at 80 Portland Place. We asked those members in the classes of MInstP, FInstP and Hon.FInstP to vote on our proposals.

We are pleased to announce that these proposals have been approved, with 93% in favour and 7% against, allowing us to move forward with implementing changes that are part of exciting developments that are taking place across the organisation.

You can find out about the background and details of our proposals on the IOP website.

This is a time of real transformation for the IOP and the biggest change we will be making to the Institute in more than 60 years. With the simplification of our structure and fees, we can move toward building a contemporary membership that will provide value to each and every member, as well as build a wider community of those who share a passion for physics.

In the coming weeks and months, we will be in touch with all our members and stakeholders to give them further information about what these changes mean for them.

We look forward to taking the first step to developing our organisation to reflect the changing landscape of physics today
