Sympathisers are individuals and/or organisations who have a special interest in the VViN and wish to be kept informed of the association’s activities, but who are not (yet) eligible for membership.

Interested parties should contact the association’s management, requesting to become a sympathiser. What does a sympathiser membership mean?

  • Sympathisers are welcome at the members’ meetings and are permitted to use the association’s facilities.
  • They will receive the minutes of the general members’ meetings and invitations for VViN activities, such as conferences, workshops and presentations.
  • Sympathisers are listed on the website, but will not receive the association’s logos etc. for commercial use.
  • Sympathisers do not have the right to vote.

The fee for sympathisers is equal to the fee applicable to those with a category 5 turnover.
