Since AOIFE has been dissolved, membership applications are not possible anymore.
There are two
types of membership in AOIFE:
membership is reserved for institutions of higher and further education
and research, as well as documentation and resource centers. The annual membership
fee for institutional members is 500 Euro.
membership is for networks and national, regional, professional and European
associations and coordinating bodies. The annual membership fee for associate
members is 250 Euro.
- The member institution/association
is located in or bordering Europe and can be described as either a institution
of higher education/research, a documentation/resource centre, a women's studies
network, or a Women's Studies national/regional/professional European association/coordinating
- Every member insitution has an official contact person who represents her institution/association in AOIFE
and will serve as the liaison between AOIFE and the member institution/association. Another (replacement) contact can be named. Any changes in the contact persons or other contact information must be reported to the AOIFE Secretariat.
- Annual membership
fees must be paid prior to the specified deadline in order to become/remain
an AOIFE member. In special cases, however, an institution or association
unable to pay the full membership fee can be granted reduction or exemption
from one year's worth of membership fees upon approval of the AOIFE Council.
- Membership in AOIFE is rolling, meaning that there is no cut-off date for a given year. The membership year is the same as the calendar year (1.01-31.12).
Membership is confirmed
by the Secretariat once the application has been approved by the AOIFE Council
and proof of payment of the annual membership fee is attained. Any questions
regarding membership in AOIFE should be directed to the AOIFE Secretariat.
