The annual corporate membership fee of €1,950 is invoiced in December each year. Members joining midway through a year pay pro-rata. This fee has not increased since 2008 and F&L tries to avoid increases. You are encouraged to involve your team members in F&L as this increases the benefit and you do not pay more.
In-person meetings are heavily subsidised by sponsors and F&L. Members pay €400 pp to help cover costs of catering, venues and so on. Non-members pay more. F&L is non-profit and any surplus funds are used to subsidise future conferences / organise events and visits for members.
You must give minimum 3 months’ notice to resign as a member – 30 September is the latest date by which you may resign for the following year which begins 1 January.
Logistics service provider and other companies not classified as “shippers” must be bring at least one shipper into membership within the first 12 months to ensure the focus of the F&L community remains broad.
