Why becoming a sponsoring member?
You want to support our club, but you cannot afford to spend lots of money, or you do not want to load costs on the club, then the supporting membership is ideal. The fact that a sponsoring member will not be included in the real club status, it remains without a voice at member meetings. But the sponsoring member is mentioned on the website by name and receives an annual report on the activities of the Association by email.
What is the contribution as a sponsoring member?
Every sponsoring member can determinate the contribution by him- or herself, tough, it has to be at least € 1,00 monthly.
