Notification for PLM to LM conversion
27 December 2016
All Provisional Life Members (PLMs) of IADVL, who have completed 5 years of
provisional membership and obtained a postgraduate (PG) degree/diploma in
Dermatology and registered their PG qualification with the MCI/State Medical
Council, are notified to become Life Members (LMs) latest by 15 January, 2017 to
avoid lapse of their membership.
This is in consonance with the IADVL Constitution which grants Provisional Life
Membership for a period of 5 years within which a PLM has to convert to LM, failing
which he/she ceases to be a member of the association.
There are many benefits and privileges of being an IADVL Life Member (LM). Only a
LM can apply for orations, awards, grants, scholarships, observerships and also can
become members of international societies. Moreover, life membership of the
association will enable you to cast your vote in the IADVL Elections and participate
actively in the functioning of the association at both State and National levels.
One can apply for conversion from PLM to LM through the Online Membership
Application System (OMAS) on the IADVL website (www.iadvl.org). Those PLMs, who
have migrated to another state branch after post-graduation, can write to the
Secretary of the parent State Branch (where their PLM is registered) for a No
Objection Certificate (NOC) and, thereafter, apply for conversion from PLM to LM and
State Branch transfer concurrently.
Any PLM whose membership lapses by 15 January, 2017 on this count will have to
apply afresh for membership of the Association.
