Individual researchers become members if they share the principles and aims of the Association, register and pay the foreseen membership fees.
Institutes, agencies and research centres in Economics become corporate members if they are admitted by the absolute majority of the Executive committee. Corporate members participate to the general meeting through their representatives.
The associates are held to the payment of the registration fee in the measure established for each of the two categories of members by the general meeting.
The associates can decay from their membership because of indignity or delayed payment. The forfeiture because of indignity is deliberated by the absolute majority of the Executive Board. The forfeiture for delayed payment happens when the individual or corporate member has not paid the membership fees relative to the last two years. The forfeiture for delayed payment operates thirty days after the Secretary has enjoined the member to pay the due fees.
