Legal address: AITA/IATA asbl - MAI, 40 rue Washington, 1050 Bruxelles-Ixelles, Belgique
YOU CAN JOIN THE ASSOCIATION IN MANY WAYS…
The first and maybe most important way is by creating a theatre performance to participate in an AITA/IATA supported event…
Being an organiser of amateur theatre events yourself, you could be an intresting partner to us as…
a Member of AITA/IATA, as a National Centre…
A National Centre Member is a network, a concentrator of activities, local and global, working proactively in the field of amateur theatre. It is an official body representing amateur theatre activity on a national level or in a self-governing territory, which is part of a country.
Due to specific political structures in some countries, more than one National Centre Member can be accepted as a representative body for amateur theatre in self-governing territories that are parts of these countries.
National Centres Members network with amateur theatre organisations throughout their country or self-governing territory. They communicate and co-ordinate information from AITA/IATA asbl to these organisations. National Centre Members have 6 votes at General Assembly.
The current annual Membership Fee for National Centre Members is as follows:
475 Euro for a National Centre Member in a United Nations HDI Category 1 (Very High) Country
350 Euro for a National Centre Member in a United Nations HDI Category 2 (High) Country
200 Euro for a National Centre Member in a United Nations HDI Category 3 (Medium) Country
50 Euro for a National Centre Member in a United Nations HDI Category 4 (Low) Country
At the General Assembly in Ypres 2015, the membership and subscription fees were lowered. This was done in anticipation both that new Members and Associates would be attracted to join and also that the new membership structure proposed by Council would be approved at the 2017 General Assembly in Monaco. Council’s proposal to create equal Membership, however, failed to get the necessary majority and, while AITA/IATA has attracted more Members and Associates, the increase has not been enough to cover the reduced income.
Over this same period, AITA/IATA has received fewer and fewer invitations from Members, Associates or others to host events such as Council meetings or General Assemblies. This has resulted in increased expenditure for AITA/IATA.
Reduced income and increased expenditure mean that AITA/IATA has been eating into its reserves on a scale that cannot continue. To address this situation, Council proposed to the 2019 General Assembly, a modest increase in Fees and Subscriptions from 2020. The amounts due for 2020 are reflected in the new fees mentioned above.
For reference 2019 HDI (Human Development Index United Nations) ranking information is available HERE.
To become a Member National Centre of your country or self-governing territory, an organisation first has to be proposed by Council to and accepted by the General Assembly of AITA/IATA asbl.
