I. Determine the Membership Category
Applicants should first determine their category of membership.
Individual Members who are seniors (no longer in paid employment) or students (currently pursuing Bachelor or Master’s degree level studies) can apply for a 50% discount on the membership fee by sending a copy of an ID confirming their senior or student status to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also indicate whether you are eligible for the standard discount (see section III). In your request please include the following information: first and last name; email; phone number (including country code); address; working language (EN, FR, ES, DE).
II. Indicate the correct number of members
For category 3 and 4, membership fees are adjusted according to number of staff or members of the organisation. Choose the correct number from the menu to add the surcharge reflecting the size of your organisation.
III. Apply the discount code if you are eligible
Refer to the United Nations publication on Human Development Index (HDI) categories here HDI_2020.pdf to look up in what HDI category your country is ranked: Very High HDI, High HDI, Medium HDI or Low HDI. The baseline membership fee is for the Very High HDI. Add the relevant discount code to your registration application according to the HDI level for your country:
Discount code for Low HDI = L-HDI
Discount code for Medium = M-HDI
Discount code for High HDI = H-HDI
All fees are indicated in Euros. When you pay in a different currency, the exchange rate at that moment will be applied.
Countries with a critical economic situation or a suddenly collapsed economy can be offered an additional exceptional and temporarily discount as agreed by the IAEVG Executive Committee and authorized by the president in each case. Requests with substantial argumentation should be send to email@example.com
