Special Notice – Membership Renewal

Translation: ChineseKoreanSpanish

From this year we are making changes to the membership renewal process to ensure exclusive access to full benefits for our paid-up members. In 2021, we’ll be adding even more benefits to support our members and bring you together.

This year has been a difficult time for us all. In response we’ve added many essential member-only benefits to supplement our existing educational activities:

• Our Teaching Online Platform IACLETOP, developed using the Canvas system

• More than 40 multilingual recorded live webinars, available to view via IACLETOP

• The IACLE Contact Lens Course (ICLC), your essential resource to deliver a comprehensive contact lens curriculum, is now on IACLETOP

• The IACLE Flashcards, to support the delivery of students’ practical skills

• The Student Trial Exam (STE), conducted by members online for final-year students

• The IACLE Case Report Series, a growing collection of interactive case reports in new formats for IACLETOP

To support you as the recovery from the pandemic continues, we’ll be extending our successful TLC Initiative into 2021 and adding further valuable benefits:

• A new program of weekly live webinars on a global, regional or national basis

• The IACLE Contact Lens Course will be exclusively available via IACLETOP, with more translations into core and other languages

• The Fellowship Exam will take place in 2021 via IACLETOP, with preparation assistance through the platform

• A second Virtual Conference in April 2021

• Educators will be able to develop their own learning environment on IACLETOP

To ensure your exclusive access to all these membership benefits, we have a new renewal schedule:

• Annual invoices will be sent out to existing members in November

• Payment of your annual membership renewal fee is due before 1 January

• Access to full membership benefits will end on 31 January if payment is not received

• A late fee will be payable for members who have not paid by the end of February
