A Guide to the Campaign System (implemented from Nov./01/2019 to Mar./31/2020)

The Japan Wood Research Society (JWRS) implements the campaign system in the fiscal year of 2019 (from Apr./01/2019 to Mar./31/2020) for admission as a “Student Membership” in the period from Nov./01/2019 to Mar./31/2020.

When a graduate or undergraduate student applies to the “Student Membership” in the above-described period and pays the student membership fee (7000JPY) for a fiscal year of 2020 (from Apr./01/2020 to Mar./31/2021), he or she will have the whole student membership for the fiscal year of 2020 as well as an additional right in the fiscal year of 2019. The right is to make a presentation(s) at and participate in the 70th Annual Meeting of JWRS, accompanying payment of the registration fee for a student member. This campaign system is only for a “student membership”, but “full membership” is not eligible for this promotion.
