The Royal Entomological Society has a new website in January 2022.

We encourage all members and fellows to log in to our new members area for the first time. It’s easier than ever for you to change your details, access content and apply discounts, wherever you are, on any device.

Our subscriptions are increasing on 1 March 2022 but you can save money and avoid the increase by setting up your Direct Debit or paying before 1 March. Please note that current Direct Debit instructions for UK members are no longer valid and require reconfirmation (instructions to pay below).

Three steps before 1st March
1) log in to your account on the website
2) add your preferred payment method
3) consider paperless communications and our monthly email newsletter

How to log in to your account for the first time

  1. Please click here to visit the site.
  2. Enter the email address that you use for the RES click ‘Reset password’.
  3. You will receive an email with the subject ‘Password Reset Request for Royal Entomological Society’
