ESPEN Block Membership

SASPEN has a block membership agreement with ESPEN. If you are a member of a SASPEN you are entitled to a special rate of € 90 per year that gives you the same benefits as an individual ESPEN member. The fee is €40 when born in 1985 or later (thus 35 years or younger) or Senior members (born in 1955 or earlier). SASPEN will bill you for your National + ESPEN membership and will then pay ESPEN. You cannot pay your block membership fees online on the ESPEN website.

Membership starts on the day your subscription is accepted, and ends on the 31st of December of the same year.
