(a) Full Members
Full Members are national mathematical societies, which elect 1, 2, 3, or 4 delegates according to their membership class. Council decides the membership class and societies are invited to apply for the class upgrade. However, the current membership class of the society determines the number of delegates for the 2020 Council.
Each society is responsible for the election of its delegates. To be eligible to nominate its delegates the society must have paid the corporate membership fee for the year 2019 and / or 2020. It is not compulsory but is highly appreciated that the full member delegates join the EMS as individual members.
