The EAAE membership is valid for a triennial period beginning on 1 January of the year in which a member joins. For example, a member who joined in 2016 is a member for the triennial period 1 January 2016 to 31 December 2018. Likewise, a member who joins in 2018 is a member for the triennial period 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2020.

The cost of becoming an EAAE member in 2020 is 150 Euro for the triennial period of 2020-2022. That is just 50 Euro per year. Every participant in an EAAE Congress, EAAE Seminar, or EAAE PhD workshop must be a member of the EAAE before registering for the event. EAAE membership is open to all with an interest in agricultural economics. If you are a member you are not obliged to participate in an EAAE event such as the congress or a seminar.

Background information

The EAAE membership is valid for a triennial period. Until 1 January 2013, the three-year period operated on a Congress-to Congress basis. For example members who joined either at the XIIIth Congress in Zurich or by attending an EAAE seminar prior to 1 January 2013 was a member under the old rules, and your membership automatically lapsed on 21st August 2014 just before the 2014 Congress in.

Following the decision taken by the General Meeting held in Prague in September 2012, for members joining since 1 January 2013, the membership period changed to a three-year calendar period starting in the year in which the membership application is made. Thus, a member who attended a seminar in 2013 and became a member during that year had a three-year membership for the period 2013-2015. A member who paid their membership in 2014 had a membership for the period 2014-2016, and so on. Members who renewed their membership in order to participate in the Prague Congress in 2017 or who became a member during the course of 2020 will have a three-year membership, which will run until 31 December 2022.
