How to become a member of Ada-Europe?

Individuals:

If you want to become a member of Ada-Europe, please join your national Ada organisation and become an indirect member of Ada-Europe. In some countries, indirect membership in Ada-Europe is automatically part of your national membership; in other countries, it is an optional element of your national membership.

The current Ada-Europe membership fee is 35 € for indirect members (plus any fees that your national organisation charges).

As benefits you will receive:

  • a free copy of the quarterly Ada User Journal, distributed via the national Ada organisations
  • a reduced registration fee at the annual Ada-Europe conference (exceeding the cost of your indirect membership)
  • in some years, a "surprise" distribution (in 2001 it was the "Consolidated Ada Reference Manual" published by Springer)

Your benefits run from April to March of the following year.

If your country does not have a national Ada organisation, you can contact the Secretary of Ada-Europe to become a direct member of Ada-Europe, subject to Ada-Europe Board approval.

The current Ada-Europe membership fee is 55 € for direct members. Your benefits are the same as for indirect members, except that the Journal is shipped directly to you.

Institutions:

National Ada organisations are the primary promoters of corporate memberships. In case a national Ada organisation exists in your country, it can offer its corporate members to designate individuals as indirect members of Ada-Europe at the Ada-Europe individual indirect membership fee (plus any fees that your national organization charges). In case no national organisation exists in your country, corporate membership may be established directly with Ada-Europe. Please contact the President or the Secretary of Ada-Europe for further information. As of April 2004, the cost of corporate membership with Ada-Europe starts at 500€/year.
