LSP Report: Q1 membership figures spike after application process revamp

(MANILA-PHILIPPINES) 2016 membership figures of the Linguistic Society of the Philippines (LSP) reached a whopping 298 at the end of the 1st quarter of the LSP fiscal year compared to last year's 320 for Q4.

The breakdown is as follows: regular members, 51; student members, 59; institutional members from 5 institutions, 25; lifetime members, additional 15 to the existing 128, and installment scheme-based lifetime members, 16.

The incremental increase can be seen as a result of the refinements done in the application process, particularly the shift from paper-based to online-based registration.

"I am so impressed with the quick application process as well as the new LSP certificate with LUMIC (LSP Unified Membership Identification Code)," praised a member. "It makes me proud to be an LSP member," she continued.

With the exception of Lifetime Memberships, all confirmed 2016 memberships will be valid from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017 regardless of date of application within the fiscal year.
