Group Rate and Individual Membership in the ECA Academy

There are actually three ways to join the ECA Academy as member:

  • by participating in one of the Academy’s public or live online conferences or courses (the training must be a 2-day course/conference at least). When you register for any of these events you automatically gain a 2-year membership starting with the date of the conference/course you attended.
  • by signing up for an individual membership
  • by applying for a group rate

Individual Membership Opportunities: One Year or Three Years

Sign up for the ECA Individual Membership for one year (based on the calendar year – from January through December) and benefit from the following ECA membership advantages without necessarily attending a conference or a course. Or, even easier, you sign up for the new 3 years membership and benefit from the ECA membership advantages for the next three years. That way you won’t have to bother again next year – and you’ll save money.
