Membership fees

Membership fees to the GAP are based on the member’s income. There are four categories:

  • Professors or members with comparable income pay an annual fee of 60€.
  • Employees (50% and above) in Germany, Austria and Switzerland pay an annual fee of 40€.
  • Students and non-employees pay an annual fee of 12€.
  • Supporting members pay an annual fee of 100€.

The payment of membership fees is mandatory through the SEPA direct debit procedure. Members who are unable to participate in the SEPA direct debit process are granted two options for payment:

  1. By direct bank transfer, if only if the payment is made in EUR.
  2. By PayPal, if only if it is not possible to make a direct bank transfer in EUR.

Foreign currencies incur high bank fees, and PayPal payments, as well as late payments, result in a significant amount of additional work. Therefore, members who cannot participate in the SEPA direct debit process are subject to an administration fee of 10 EUR. The administration fee is waived if the contribution payment (via direct bank transfer or PayPal) is received in January. (These payment modalities were decided at the 2009 and 2023 General Meetings).

Members whose membership fee cannot be withdrawn despite having issued a direct debit mandate shall pay an administration fee of EUR 10, unless the reason for this lies with the GAP.
