Membership Application Process

Once your organization has decided to explore joining EUROCROWD, you can connect informally per email and we will contact you. In an interview with the management, you will be able to get to know us first hand. We will try to understand your organisation’s priorities and explore on your possible involvement in EUROCROWD activities. You then will be asked to submit a short Application Form. 

After we have received your application, we will start onboarding you into our membership and present your application to our Board for approval. We will then issue an invoice to process the payment of the annual fee, which finalises the application.  Each membership runs for a maximum of one calendar year, ending on 31 December. You can cancel your commitment at any time, but paid contributions will not be reimbursed. You will receive an invoice for the relevant amount.
