Membership Fee Structure (starting 2010)

In May 2009 the General Assembly approved a fee structure with a sliding scale for the fee based on the country the member resides in using income data and categories published by the World Bank. The structure includes – beside the normal “Member” and the “Young Professional” – additional membership categories: “Student” and “Senior Member” (65 years and older).

As SCUPAD has no information on the age of its members, Senior members shall apply once, Students and Young Professionals yearly for the reduced membership fee.
