ESE Advocacy Representation Scheme (EARS)

As an ESE National Partner Society member, a contribution of €2.50 per national member of the society is payable as a contribution to ESE's Policy and Advocacy work via the ESE Advocacy Representation Scheme (EARS). This contribution enables us to work on behalf of our members and the whole of the endocrine community in this important area.

Becoming part of the EARS Community is at no cost to the individual members as the small annual fee of €2.50 is paid on their behalf by their National Society. Please note that this is separate to any existing ESE membership.
