Membership Categories, Fees and Subscriptions

At the July 2015 AITA/IATA asbl General Assembly, Delegates voted to reduce the Membership Fee of National Centres and Affiliates and the Subscription of Associates. A four-tier structure of membership was also agreed. Detailed below is the new structure and Fee and Subscription levels.

Associates:

Any institution, festival, drama group or individual in any country can become an AITA/IATA Associate. Associates are not members and do not have any voting rights at the biannual General Assembly but they can attend and speak. They also have an access to festivals and events organised by AITA/IATA asbl and receive information from the Secretariat.

The annual Subscription for Associates is as follows:

  • Associate in HDI Category 1 (Very High) Country    € 50
  • Associate in HDI Category 2 (High) Country    € 50
  • Associate in HDI Category 3 (Medium) Country    € 50
  • Associate in HDI Category 3 (Low) Country    € 10

Associate Application Form

Associates are registered by AITA/IATA asbl Council.

National Centres and Affiliates:

National Centres are organisations that network with amateur theatre organisations throughout their country or autonomous territory. They communicate and co-ordinate information from AITA/IATA asbl to these organisations. National Centres have 6 votes at General Assembly.

Affiliate Members are national representative bodies that are working towards the establishment of a National Centre or official representative organisations of an autonomous territory. Affiliate Members have 2 votes at General Assembly.

The annual Membership Fee for Members and Affiliates is as follows:

  • Full Member or Affiliate Member in HDI Category 1 (Very High) Country    € 350

 Affiliate / Member Application Form

To become a National Centre of its country, an organisation first has to be accepted by the General Assembly as an Affiliate Member for at least two years. During that time it will be evaluated by the Regional Representative and get full support. In case of no Regional Representative, a member of the Council will be appointed to evaluate the performance of the organisation. The membership status is a subject to ratification by the General Assembly of AITA/IATA asbl.

    • Dear Aamir Nawaz

      Thank you for your enquiry. You will see on this page at the link above (in red text) the application form to become an Associate of aita/iata. Pakistan is in Category 3 and so your annual subscription to aita/iata would be €10. If you complete the form and send it to me at secretariat@aitaiata.org I can let you have details of payment by PayPal which has just been set up.

      aita/iata has no National Centre or Associates in Pakistan, so we would warmly welcome you into our organisation on receipt of your annual fee.

    • Dear Kahalil Tanan Alo

      Many thanks for your comments. As you can see from the information on the page ‘about us’ we are an organisation for amateur theatre, that is for those who take part in theatre for the love of it, nor for payment.

      From what you say about your organisation I think it is for professional theatre practitioners. If I am wrong and you are an organisation for amateur theatre, do please get in touch again.
