Prerequisites for an ECG Account
In order to receive an ECG Account you have to
be a member of an ECG legal body (eg. association) (become a member here)Special rules for business memberships
The membership should exist
- either with you (personally)
or with your company/organisation, for which you are the contact person
The owner of an ECG account must be a natural person (we do not set up accounts for businesses or organisations as such). Thus for a company or organisation the account will be set up for one or more of their contact persons.
The person applying for the account does not have to be a member of an ECG association.
If the contact person leaves the company/organisation, the account would be
- either transferred to a personal membership account
- or is discontinued
Please note, that there are no exceptions from this rule - also not for Employees of ECG associations
Important: Most associations do offer a reduced membership fee.
Here are the conditions of some associations (for other associations the amount of the fee must be requested directly from the association).

- contribute actively to the movement, eg. in a Local Chapter or Hub
- be listed in our membership database SmartWe with exactly one unique entry of your name and birthdate
- if you are not yet listed in our SmartWe database, please sign up here as a supporter. This is not the same as signing up as a member. It only ensures that you are entered in our database.
