According to our Articles of Association, the membership fee represents an annual contribution for the current calendar year. Regardless of whether the application takes place in January or, for example, in July, the annual contribution is to be paid in full. A proportionate monthly payment is not possible. This was decided by the General Assembly as an executive organ of BVL and is documented in our Articles of Association.
Please note that personal memberships can only be charged to the member's home address; corporate memberships will be invoiced to the companies.
With your registration, you benefit immediately from the numerous advantages of the BVL membership. For example, the participation fee for our events, such as the International Supply Chain Conference in Berlin, can be reduced by up to EUR 200, which has already paid off a personal membership fee.
According to the decision of the Ordinary Member Meeting of 09.05.2023, there will be changes in the membership fees and categories as of 01.01.2024. In future, there will be two new membership fee categories for companies (1,001 to 2,000 employees and over 2,000 employees). Member companies of these sizes are welcome to nominate the number of 12 or 16 included contact persons at this year's membership fee of € 1,300! As of 01.01.2024, the new fees - decided at this year's Ordinary Member Meeting - will apply.
