Membership and Members

There are different kinds of membership:

  • Normal members: admission fee of 45 € (45 US$), annual fee of 35 € (40 US$) starting from the 2nd year of membership and if paid in the first quarter of the year; in general 45 € (45 US$) become due if payments are made later (2nd to 4th quarter).
  • Senior members (starting from the 75th birthday): new senior members (joining the CH&LS) pay a non-recurring fee of 45 € (or US$) and are then freed of membership fees. Voluntary payments will be booked as donations.
  • Honorary members (appointed by the board and the regional representatives): no membership fee; voluntary payments will be booked as donations as well.
  • Sponsored membership (the membership fee of a member is completely paid by another member): The membership fee is 35 €/year, no admission fee. The status of this membership is limited to 5 years.
  • Institutional members: no membership fee and no admission fee.
