Acquisition of membership
Members of the association can be physical or legal persons as well as partners with legal capacity who meet the requirements of the Statutes for either a regular, supporting or honorary membership.
Admission as a regular and supporting member takes place upon written request to the Executive Board, stating all necessary information in accordance with the current admission documents. The requirements and contents of the admission documents (application for admission, member master sheet, information on the members, etc.) for regular and supporting members are decided by the Executive Board with a simple majority of votes. The Executive Board makes a final decision on the admission of regular and supporting members.
The appointment as an honorary member is made by the General Assembly at the request of the Executive Board.
