Membership fees

Membership categories are described in Membership Information.

1. Full Members

Full Members pay a percentage of their declared national membership fees as shown in their annual financial reports. The percentage is recommended by the Board of Trustees to the General Members Meeting and approved by voting. For 1999 3% fees were approved. In any case a fixed minimum fee of Euro 1,000 (or the equivalent in another currency) has to be paid to INEM to maintain Full Member status. This fee also allows members of Full Members to access INEM´s services. The fee serves to cover part of INEM´s operational cost. It should be in the interest of the Full Members to support INEM in its international endeavours of networking, which in return benefit the national members.

Requests for amendments of Full Membership fees must reach INEM in writing with applicable justifications, and will be handled on a case-by-case basis. The fixed minimum Full Member fee is not negotiable.


2. Affiliated Members

Affiliated Members pay a set annual fee to access all INEM´s services and network. The fee is set by INEM and approved by its Board of Trustees.
