Proposals for new members can be made by any current CIA member, with the process culminating in a formal vote at a General Meeting held every two years. This rigorous selection process ensures that CIA members are at the forefront of shaping the future of allergy and immunology, fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange among the brightest minds in the field.
