Question :
I'm a Malaysian Student currently doing my final year (Bsc Human Nutrition) at University Of Surrey, UK. I will be graduating this comming May and will return to Malaysia for a job. Now i would like to apply to become the member of the Nutrition Society, however, i'm not really sure who should i put in into the "application porposed by" and the "application seconded by" sections. Is it my current supervisor in my university or other members of the Nutrition Society? Thank you.

Answer :
Do not worry too much about the "proposer" and "seconder". Just send the form to us, with a copy of your degree. We will process accordingly. These are supposed to be members of the NSM, not your present lecturers.

Answer :
If you are applying as associate member, the proposer and seconder is not too important. If you are applying for ordinary member, contact your previous lecturers or your friends in other companies.
