We offer two types of membership: cooperatives and organisations that unite or federate cooperatives, at national or international level, may become members while other types of organisations that are not themselves cooperatives or organizations uniting or federating cooperatives, but that support them in some way, can become Associate Members.

Benefits of Membership
The Membership Prospectus and Member Services Brochure provides you with more information on the benefits of membership.
Costs of Membership
Organisations can apply as a full Member with voting rights or an Associate Member. Membership dues are calculated based on subscription formulae for Members and on a flat fee scale Associate Members, as described in the ByLaws. Members pay an annual subscription based on the number of their individual members (number of individuals they represent through their member societies). You can get a quote by contacting the Director of Membership.
How to Apply
Candidates for membership must fill in a Membership Application Form in English, French or Spanish and submit it with required documents.
