1. Full members
Full membership is open to humanist organisations, lawfully established in a European country. Applications are dealt with in accordance with Article 27. To be admitted as a full member, the organisation must be accepted by the General Assembly with a majority of eight tenths of the expressed votes. Only full members are entitled to vote at the General Assembly.
2. Associate members
Associate membership is open to any humanist organisation in Europe. Applications are decided by the Board and reported to the following General Assembly. The General Assembly may reverse any such decision by a simple majority. Associate members have no vote at the General Assembly and do not pay any subscription.
By humanist organisation is understood any organisation which promotes humanism and/or secularism and supports Humanism in the sense of “a democratic and ethical life stance, which
• affirms that human beings have the right and responsibility to give meaning and shape to their own lives
• stands for the building of a more humane society through an ethic based on human and other natural values in the spirit of reason and free inquiry through human capabilities; and
• is not theistic, and does not accept supernatural views of reality.”Each organisation must apply in writing at the head office of EHF-FHE for its membership.
3. Supporting (individual) members
Individuals may become supporters on payment of the relevant fee, if they are accepted by the Board. They shall have whatever privileges are decided by the Board but shall have no vote at the General Assembly.
Members are required to accept the IHEU Minimum Definition of Humanism:
“Humanism is a democratic and ethical life stance, which affirms that human beings have the right and responsibility to give meaning and shape to their own lives. It stands for the building of a more human society through an ethic based on human and other natural values in the spirit of reason and free inquiry through human capabilities. It is not theistic, and it does not accept supernatural views of reality.”
To apply for membership, download the appropriate form (see below) and submit it to the EHF. To be admitted as a member, organisations must be accepted by the General Assembly, individuals by the Board.
