The Irish Met Society is run by a team of volunteers. Membership is open to everyone and the Society already has members from all walks of life including students, teachers, academics, meteorologists, pharmacists, doctors, accountants among many others. Each year the Society organises a series of evening lectures, a one-day conference, runs a field trip and produces two newsletters/magazines. Our events are opent to the public but members get booking priority. We also record all of the lectures and these are only accessible to members as they are placed in the Member-Only section of our website - this member section also contains an archive of newsletters and lecture presentation slides.
Membership Fees: The standard annual membership subscription is €30 with a reduced rate of €10 for unwaged members. Membership of the IMS is free for students.
