Join our network

Important update: Because of the current situation, we are opening the membership for 2021 starting from 1 October 2020. Normally, if you joined our network before 2021, your membership would be valid only until the end of 2020. According to this new exceptional rule, your newly created membership will be valid from now until the end of 2021.

Want to join our network? Please follow these simple steps to submit your application:

  1. Log in to your IETM account or create an account in case you don’t have one yet. Your account will allow you to get in touch with other IETM members, register for IETM events and engage in online discussions on our website. 
  2. Take some time to read our internal rules thoroughly. These internal rules stand as a contract between you and IETM and you will have to approve them when submitting your membership application.
  3. Take a look at our membership fees. They range from €125 to €965 a year and are based on the annual turnover of your organisation or of your freelance activities. The fee for Associate members is €2.330. Please note that, in some cases, we may ask you to share with us your organisation’s financial report from the past year.
  4. Click "Apply" below and complete the online form. If your application is approved, we will get back to you within 10 working days with a confirmation email, which will include your invoice and instructions on how to proceed with the payment. Your membership will come into effect upon payment of your invoice.

  5. Once your membership starts, we will set up a Skype meeting to welcome you to the network.

Please be aware that the whole process can take a couple of weeks. If you want to be sure that you don't miss any deadlines (e.g. early-bird fees, Newsround sessions, Staff Exchange application, etc.), we advise you to submit your membership application at least one month in advance. Moreover, if a membership request comes in within two weeks before a Plenary meeting, we will not be able to process it before that meeting.

If you have any questions regarding the membership application, just drop us an email at [email protected].
