The Verein für Socialpolitik is a non-profit organization. Corporate membership is open to all institutions wishing to promote the aims of the association.
You have the possibility to be a "Major Partner Institute", a "Partner Institute" or a "Supporting Institute". The three categories differ in the benefits and in the amount of the membership fee.
Major Partner Institute
Annual membership fee: 2.000 €
Send up to 20 employees at the reduced member price to the VfS annual conference
Annual membership fee: 1.000 €

Annual membership fee: 500 €

As a corporate member, your institute generally has these advantages:
- You send - depending on the type of corporate membership - up to 20 persons to our VfS Annual Conference at a reduced conference price for members of 89 € and thus actively promote your staff.
- You appear with your logo as "Major Partner Institute", "Partner Institute" or "Supporting Institute" on the homepage of the Verein für Socialpolitik and in the program booklet of the VfS Annual conference.
- You benefit from direct access to offers on the association's homepage (academic job market, conference calendar, member directory).
As a "Major Partner Institute" or as a "Partner Institute" you can present your organisation at the VfS Annual Conference at reduced booth fees and make your institution internationally known.
Here you can find the Contribution Rules (in German only) of the Verein für Socialpolitik.
