Members of FITCE Belgium enjoy reduced prices when attending activities organised by the association. At the occasion of such activities they meet other telecom experts from different backgrounds in an informal atmosphere. The activities themselves generally consist of one or more lectures combined with either a lunch or a reception to stimulate interaction. The main event of the year is the congress where all FITCE associations of the European Union meet for several days of high quality exposés and social activities. Member organisations contribute to the social function of FITCE and in return they can bestow all the advantages of individual membership to designated individuals in their organisation. Besides they enjoy publicity by being mentioned in the member lists of the association. Supporting organisation members are mentioned with their logo and hyperlink to their own website. Their name and logo are also displayed at events.
FITCE Belgium knows four categories of membership: student, individual, company and supporting company membership.
The association is open to all ICT professionals and those engaged in studies to that effect. By professional is meant any person working in the ICT domain: engineers, marketing -, communication -, legal -, economical - and financial specialists, with a university degree or equivalent. Members can be independent or on the payroll of licensed operators, suppliers, service providers, telecom experts in large companies, regulatory bodies or Universities/Technical Institutions.
Organisations can join FITCE Belgium as a company member or as a supporting company member. In both cases, one individual needs to be designated as the official representative of the organisation for the general assembly. Next to this representative, additional 'named individuals' can be registered. A company member can name one additional individual and a supporting company member can name four additional individuals. Those named individuals enjoy the same advantages as any individual member. They receive all mailings from FITCE-Belgium, can attend our activities at special rates. They are automatically registered as members of FITCE Europe and are entitled to the lower fee for the yearly congress. Supporting company members enjoy supplementary value through the extra visibility given on the FITCE.be website and at our activities.
Since 2008, in order to promote the participation of young professionals to the activities of FITCE, supporting company members can register two more - and company members can register one more - 'named individuals'. These extra individuals must be born in 1976 or later.
Organisations that are legally not allowed to be member of a vzw/asbl can as yet join FITCE.be as a "non-acting member" and thus enjoy all advantages of normal membership except that they do not have voting right at the general assembly. If this is your case, please check the box at the bottom of the registration form. Membership is contracted per calendar year.
Newcomers get a special deal:
- Payment after September 1 entails all benefits of FITCE membership for the remainder of the running year as well as for the next year;
- Payment before September 1 applies to the running year only.
If you have further questions regarding membership matters, do not hesitate to contact us.
