Wikimedia Belgium NPO has the legal requirement that a membership register of all effective members is kept.

It has to be provided to the government upon request.

Associate membership[edit]

You can become an associate member by requesting a:

  • normal membership, open to any natural person (yearly fee of € 20).
  • active membership, open to contributors of the Wikimedia projects (like Wikipedia). This membership type is complimentary.
  • supporting membership, open to everybody interested in our organisation. We ask you for your a generous yearly donation (minimum € 25).

Once accepted as associate member, there is no difference between these two memberships.

The current membership system was approved by the board on 7 December 2014 (minutes).

As per the Statutes (en) we do not accept other organisations to become member.

Other types of members[edit]

Membership of Wikimedia Belgium is legally determined. The following types of membership exist:

An associate member being member for at least 6 months can become an effective member upon request and after approval by the board.

Membership can be refused by the Board when there are good reasons to do so.
