How do I sign up?

It has been almost a year since the ISKO Low Countries Chapter was established. Last year through the dedication and passion shown by our small but mighty ISKO community we started out with a bang by successfully hosting the ISKO-LC 2019 Conference at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB).

After a startup period and some delay caused by the exceptional circumstances as a result of COVID-19, we now are ready to accept membership fees.

ISKO-LC fees include membership in ISKO International, as well as access to the online Knowledge Organization (KO) journal* and repository. Fees are paid per calendar year and are based on rates set by ISKO International:

Regular                            € 60

Retired                             € 25

Student                            € 15

Corporate**                     € 120

As a fledgling organization we do not yet have an automated system for processing payments. In order to confirm your membership of ISKO-LC in 2020 we therefore ask you to please send a bank transfer using the details provided below. In order to facilitate the administration of your payment please add your surname and membership level to the payment description in the following way: SurnameMembershiplevel2020 e.g. CoenRegular2020. 

*Obtaining the print version of the KO journal is optional and costs an additional € 30. To avail of this option please calculate the additional cost together with your membership fee and add opt to the end of your payment description e.g. CoenRegular2020opt. 

**The contact person at institutions with ‘Corporate’ membership will receive an invoice for payment of fees directly. 

Once your payment has been successfully processed you will be issued with a receipt as confirmation.
