There are three categories of EOA membership:
Full membership is open to all Exam Office Personnel working within a registered centre anywhere in the world. Full members pay an annual subscription fee and have access to all the Association’s benefits and services including the members section of the website. Full members are entitled to suffix their name with the designation of MEOA and can vote to elect EOA Board members from within the membership.
Affilate Members (invigilators only):
Exam Office Personnel can register as Associate members of the EOA and have limited access to the Association’s benefits and services and although they will receive regular newsletters and information they cannot access the members section of the EOA website.
EOA Fellows (honorary):
This category of membership applies to retired Exam Office Personnel who still wish to stay in touch with the Association via newsletters and other communications. There is no subscription applicable to EOA Fellows and they cannot vote to elect members to the Board.
Since 1st October 2007 there have been two levels of fees for membership: Renewal of fees for existing members and fees for new members as shown in the following table:
Fees are only applicable to persons with Full membership. Associate members and EOA Fellows are not charged and are not eligible to the same benefits as Full members, including access to certain areas of the website. These fees will be reviewed annually and members will be advised accordingly if there is any change.
Fees are charged annually.
While some members may want or have to pay their own fee to access the EOA benefit package, members may wish to seek support for this fee from their centres in the interests of helping to maintain their exam office workforce.
