Membership

Get a head-start too, and join AWVN!

AWVN-PERSONAL-INTERVIEW.pngApart from affiliation as a regular member, you can also join AWVN in the capacity of prospective member.

Normal membership
This is regular membership. Any company or trade association in the Netherlands can become a direct member of AWVN. Members receive all the AWVN’s services offered in exchange for payment of membership dues.
Members can also have unlimited use of the AWVN’s paid services. These members have voting rights within the association and are eligible for official seats on the board.

Prospective membership
This is a special membership structure for companies and trade associations that fi rst want to get to know AWVN with a view to possibly becoming full members thereafter. Companies and trade associations can only put themselves forward as prospective members if they simultaneously contract out a reasonable consultancy assignment to AWVN which they pay for. Other conditions and rules are:
• The period of prospective membership is set at a maximum of six months
• Notice of termination must be given at least one month before the term of prospective membership comes to an end*
• In the absence of any notice of termination, prospective membership automatically turns into normal membership, whereupon the rules governing normal membership apply
• Companies and trade associations may only make use of prospective membership once
• Prospective members do not pay a membership fee
• Prospective members receive the same services in return for membership dues as normal members
• Prospective members do not have voting rights and are not eligible for offi cial seats on the board.

* If a prospective member renounces normal membership and therefore gives notice of termination during the course of an ongoing consultancy assignment, AWVN completes the assignment under way in accordance with the offer. In this case AWVN applies a 10% surcharge on the activities it performs (in the framework of the assignment in question) aft er expiry of the maximum term of prospective membership.


Membership fees for full members
The fee is set based on the organisation’s total wage and salary bill in the preceding year (e.g. the 2014 fee is based on the total wage and salary bill in 2013, column 14 of the summary payroll statement). AWVN membership includes membership of VNO-NCW for which the extra contribution equals 0.46 per mil of the total wage and salary bill. Industry associations or companies already directly or indirectly (via an industry association) affiliated to VNO-NCW are exempted from this contribution.
All contacts receive an accesscode by e-mail for the exclusive membersite of AWVN. All contacts are automatic subscribed for the various digital newsletters of AWVN. You can unsubscribe through the personal page at the membersite of AWVN.

Sign-up fee
The signup fee is € 1,250 in the year of joining.
