Are membership fees necessary ?
- The membership fees promote a sense of shared ownership (John Dart from DEBRA)
- Membership fees of sick persons are not necessary. Membership contributions of each national association can be useful. (Rudolf Kleinsorge from HSP Europe)
- Membership fees are necessary. We have membership fees of our membership organisations: 400 € per year for full members (which is a lot for small groups with only 60 – 400 members like in Belgium or Switzerland, etc…) and from our different “associate members” we take a varying amount between “0 €” (Croatia since 2008), 40 € (Belgium, AFBOI, Wallonian group, 40 € from Mexico, Ecuador …. and 400 € (from the OIF from the USA).
