Extending your Membership

How to extend your membership fee?

If you have received an e-mail notification from us informing you that your membership has expired, please follow the procedure below to renew your membership.

Remember our membership structure

  • Standard membership fee: 60 EUR per two calendar years, January-December
  • Reduced membership fee: 40 EUR per two calendar years, January-December

The reduced membership applies to student members, PhD candidates, early career professionals, and members who reside in developing countries as defined by WESP (2022: World Economic Situation and Prospects 2022 (un.org)). Early career professionals are defined as members who have been working in the audiovisual translation/media accessibility industry for five years or less. This fee also applies to members experiencing hardship. To apply for the reduced membership fee on a case-by-case basis, please contact the ESIST treasurer.
