My Company Pays My Membership Fee. Who Is Member Of The Association – The Company (Because It Pays), Or Myself, As The Individual Named?
EACD membership is not transferable. Passing on one’s rights and duties as a member of the organisation is not permissible. If you are accepted as a full member, it is you as natural person who is entitled to member’s rights and duties, not your company, even if they pay the fee according to an internal agreement. As such, your membership does not end when you undertake new employment and your new company does not want to pay the fee. This holds true, except in the following case: a legal entity is accepted as supporting member, and has named you to act on its behalf in exercising its rights. In this case, you are merely acting as an agent of the supporting member, and as such, responsibility for paying EACD membership fees lie with the organisation.
I Changed My Name And/Or Relocated. Do I Have To Inform The Eacd?
Yes. Every member is obliged to inform the association of a change in their name and/or address. Costs incurred by the association arising from investigations in such matters will be reimbursed by the member. If applicable, costs arising from legal action against a member will also be reimbursed to the association.
Does My Membership End If I Lose My Employment?
No. As per our statutes, membership is only terminated by resignation (or death) of a natural person, by dissolution of a legal entity, or by exclusion from the association in either case.
Communication professionals who are seeking new employment or are in-between jobs can be registered as alumni members during this time and will receive the same benefits and undertake the same responsibilities as full members.
Please do reach out if you have more in-depth questions on this topic, we are happy to help!
I Resigned From The Eacd. Will I Get A Part Of My Membership Fees Back?
No. The termination of a membership does not entitle the former member to any claims to the association’s assets.
