Multiple members of the same family can join, of whom at least one has to be over 18 years of age. There is no membership fee for children under the age of 16. The amount of the membership fee is confirmed by the organisation’s election meeting every year. The annual membership fee is 35 euros per person starting from the beginning of 2023.

You can apply for a membership by filling out the electronic membership application form. A form has to be filled out for each separate member-to-be.
