FAQ

Who can become a member?

ANYONE! If you want to support our work for creating inclusive and norm-critical universities and colleges then please become a member. If you currently have ties to a university/college then you can even become a member at your local group or, if there is no local branch yet you can get help from us in the national board to start one.

What are the differences between being a National Member, Local Member, and Supportive Member?

We have three different types of membership to reflect what you would like to support/get involved with.

    1. As a support member you support us and have the right to attend any board meetings and the congress, but you do not want to / or cannot partake in local activities at a local branch.
    2. As a national member, we will be in touch to invite you to board meetings and the congress, our election committee will even contact you to ask if you are interested in joining the next national board.
    Note: As a support or national member, your 50 kr membership fee goes towards our organisation’s costs (e.g. board meetings, organising conferences, supporting local branches, working for political change).
    3. If you currently have ties to a university/college then you can even become a local member at your local group (or get help from us to start one). This includes but not limited to, if you are studying or employed by the university – this means that you become a member of that local branch (check with your local branch if anything else is required, i.e. a student union membership) and that your 50 kr membership fee goes back to that group, so that they can fund events and activities. Yes, you can become a local member even if you do not have current ties to that group, but would like to support them. Our election committee will contact you to ask if you are interested in joining the next national board.

What happens with the registration fee I pay?

If you become a support member or national member, then your fee goes towards our normal activities within the national board’s work: i.e. meetings and conferences, education, advertising, traveling to different universities, supporting local branches, and advocacy work. If you become a local member, then your 50 kr goes to that local branch! Awesome right? So they can put it towards their own activities and events. The money we get from memberships makes up a very small part of our budget, but the number of members that we have is very important, to show the government and other agencies that we are needed and that our work is important. Without paying members, our organization could not do the work we do, and with more members then we can do even more work!
