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.
You are encouraged to involve your team members in F&L as this increases benefit, and you do not pay more.
We run a range of events which are all free. However, in-person meetings are heavily subsidised by sponsors and F&L. Members attending in-person meetings pay €200 – €550 pp depending on the type of event, to help cover costs of catering, venues and so on. Non-members pay three times more to ensure we are fair to members. F&L is non-profit and any surplus funds are used to subsidise future conferences / organise events and visits for members.
Joining F&L is always intended with a long term participation in mind. Because we keep costs low and every member is important tot us, we ask that you give a minimum 3 months’ notice to resign as a member – therefore 30 September is the latest date by which you may resign for the following year which begins 1 January.
All members are encouraged to bring shipper(s) – brand owners – into membership within the first 12-18 months to ensure the focus of the F&L community remains broad.
