|AC FORUM MEMBERSHIP|
AC Forum Membership
AC Forum membership supports the highest level of association and congress management through an open exchange of knowledge, expertise and experiences. It does this by providing its members with a number of opportunities to freely exchange knowledge, expertise and experiences with peers facing comparable challenges in the association and congress industry in an environment that is confidential, trusting and free from commercial influence.
Members are the core of AC Forum, with peer-to-peer learning at the heart of the organisation. Active member participation, both in the organisation of activities and the attendance of such activities, is a requirement.
Membership is open to any organisation legally registered as a non-profit association according to the laws of the country in which it is constituted.
AC Forum consists of two types of members: full members and provisional members.
Full membership is open to organisations meeting all of the following criteria:
Provisional membership is open to organisations that fail to meet all criteria for full membership at the time of application, but have clearly stated the intention to fulfil the criteria for full membership within the next 3 years.
Provisional membership is granted on an observer basis for a period of 1 year and is subject to renewal after such a period. Renewal is considered only in cases where sufficient interaction with AC Forum exists, thus making further collaboration useful.
Provisional members have no voting rights and someone from the organisation is not eligible for positions in the Board.
The annual AC Forum membership fee is €1,500.
