Individual consultants and consultancy firms working in all areas of specialism are most welcome to apply for membership of EUConsult. You simply need to complete and send in the application form.
Members are businesses or individuals specialising in consulting services for and about not-for-profit organisations, with at least two years of professional experience in consulting. They are established according to law or otherwise recognised by appropriate other regulatory authorities in one of the European countries.
Members agree to abide by the EUConsult Code of Ethics and be governed by the Articles of Association.
The board may make exceptions and also accept partnerships, organisations and networks to membership, or individuals and businesses with less than two years of professional experience, or members from outside Europe, if in the opinion of the board they make a valuable contribution to the work of the association and to consultancy in the non-profit sector in Europe.
Annual membership is charged at the following rates:
- €325 – sole traders
- €485 – 2-3 employees
- €650 – 4-9 employees
- €975 – 10 or more employees.
For sole traders and consultancy firms with their main office in the CEE region, there is a special rate of €110 (subject to regular review by the EUConsult Board).
Applicants are asked to give the names of two client referees and name one member of EUConsult who knows the applicant’s work. In the event that the applicant does not know any of the members on the membership list , then the applicant should contact the Membership Secretary.
The application and the references will be checked by the Membership Secretary, who will consult with the board as needed for a final decision.
We always try to complete the approval procedure as quickly as possible. Depending on the availability of referees and board members, the process usually takes 3-4 weeks. (Please note that the Board reserves the right to refuse membership without disclosing reasons for refusal.)
Welcome to membership!
Once the Board has approved the application, new members are notified in writing.
