  2. Constitution (at end of the abstract book)The basic objective of the Asian Bioethics Association is to promote scientific research in bioethics in Asia through open and international exchanges of ideas among those working in bioethics in various fields of study and different regions of the world. In order to achieve this end the Association will encourage the following work and projects: (1) to organize and support international conferences in bioethics in Asia; (2) to assist the development and linkage of regional organizations for bioethics; (3) to encourage other academic and educational work or projects to accomplish their goals consistent with the objectives of the Association.

  3. Asian Bioethics Association Fees Membership fees are payable from October of the previous year to the completion of the following calendar year (e.g. at the time of renewal to EJAIB, the official journal of ABA).A three tier system exists for annual fees: a) Regular price (US$50 Euro 50 Yen 5000). This includes the EJAIB journal subscription and free associate membership of Eubios Ethics Institute. b) Reduced contribution (the amount is up to the member, and is also suggested for students) This includes the EJAIB journal subscription. c) No fee, because the person is not in a position to pay the fee. This does not include a hard copy of the EJAIB journal, but anyone can apply to Eubios Ethics Institute separately for a hard copy of the Journal, to be considered case by case.

  4. November 2006 elections There was an election between the two candidates nominated for position of Vice-President of ABA from China. Registered current members of ABA could place one vote for either candidate. There were 16 votes for Dr. LEI Ruipeng, and 19 votes for Dr. WANG Yanguang. Therefore Dr. Wang was elected. Next election will be November 2008; nominations from September 2008 for each position. Elections held by email in the case that positions are contested. The ABA discourages lobbying for candidates.
