Absolutely yes! You can join a WG to increase your skills, learn something new, make new friends or to be directly involved in the association.
How much time do I have to dedicate to EUROAVIA?
This is by far the most asked question and the answer is that it really depends on you. Being an association, you can just be a member and do nothing else. In that case you would still support our activities with your membership fee and we would be happy with that.
Starting from this, there are different levels of engagement with EUROAVIA activity: you can participate to one or two conferences during the year, you can join a workshop, you can take part in an international competition or you can go to an international event. Then if you want to have an active role in the activities, you can join a local working group and maybe after some time an international working group.
Finally, if you want to have a management role in the activities you can candidate for a position in the Local Board and maybe at some point in the International Board. There are no limits to your involvment in EUROAVIA but remember, the more you bring, the more you get!
How long does the membership last?
The membership is on an annual base and goes from September of the current year to September of the following year. This mean that if you become a member in February for istance, your membership will last until the next September, not until the next February.
This is done to align our Business Year to the one of EUROAVIA and to the University Academic Year. Every year indeed, we have to communicate the number of AS Forlì-Bologna members to EUROAVIA and pay the fee accordingly.

You can visit the EUROAVIA Forli-Bologna Website and fill out the member subscription form, write to firstname.lastname@example.org or speak with one of the Local Board members.
