Membership – die Mitgliedschaft

Membership 2021-2022

Membership of the Society is open to anyone interested in maintaining the long-standing links between Halifax and Aachen. New Members are always welcome and Membership entitles you to go on exchange visits to Aachen in Germany. The following year, a group of Aacheners will visit Halifax and we arrange for them to stay with the family or person they hosted the previous year. If that is not possible, then we find an alternative family to be their host. You can, if you wish, volunteer to host a visitor even if you are not interested in visiting Germany.

The new Membership year starts 1st October.

Full Membership application for current year closes on 30th April. However, for meeting attendance, you can apply to join as an Introductory Member for the remainder of the year as this will allow you to attend 4 meetings in the period May – September.

These are the four categories of Membership.
