Membership Fees

The organization of the International Erich Fromm Society and the financing of its activities rely on the membership fees and contributions of the members.

  • The annual membership fee is now normally USD 80 or CHF 100 or Euro 60 for advanced industrialized countries (reduced to USD 40 or CHF 50 or Euro 30 for unemployed and family members).
  • For other countries the fee has been set at USD 40 or CHF 50 or Euro 30 (again sometimes reducible to USD 20 or CHF 25 or Euro 15). As a rule, the fee can be waived if payment demands seem unreasonable due to differences in the exchange rate.
  • For students the membership is free.
  • For incorporated groups, membership is set at USD 160 or Euro 100 or CHF 200 per annum.

Receipts will be sent for all payments and donations in January of the following year at the latest.
