Membership

To support our network, you may consider becoming a member, a regular donor, or a B(I)ENefactor.

BIEN’s members, B(I)ENifactors, and regular donors

To become a member you need to do two things:

 

  1. Complete the membership application form: Download the form here, print it, fill it in, scan it (both pages), and send it as a pdf or jpeg attachment to the Secretary at bien@basicincome.org
  2. Pay a membership fee.

 

There are two ways to pay the fees:

  • Via Paypal (please go to the donation page)
  • or by transfer to BIEN’s bank account
    • Bank account name: The Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN)
    • Bank and bank address: CAF Bank Ltd, 25 Kings Hill Avenue, Kings Hill, West Malling, Kent ME19 4JQ, United Kingdom
    • IBAN number: GB19CAFB40524000031789
    •  Swift number: CAFBGB21XXX

 

And there are two options for membership:

To become a life member, pay a single fee of 90 British pounds.

To become an annual member, decide on your annual fee (see the suggestions below) and set up a standing order, either to Paypal or to the bank account.

Suggested scale:

Annual Income Membership fee
0-20,000 Euros £10 per year
20,000-40,000 Euros £20 per year
40,000-60,000 Euros £30 per year
60,000-80,000 Euros £40 per year
More than 80,000 Euros £50 per year

 

All members have the right to vote at BIEN’s General Assembly meetings, to stand for election to the Executive Committee, and to vote for the Executive Committee.

 

Please note that membership takes effect 22 days after the application for membership has been sent and a fee has been paid, and only sooner than that if the Executive Committee makes such a decision in a particular case (see paragraph 9, 1, b of the constitution). No new memberships will be approved either at the General Assembly or during the week before it.

B(I)ENefactors

The donation level at which a person becomes a new B(I)ENfactor is £360.   If they wish, B(I)ENefactors’ names are listed on the website, but they have no special role in BIEN.
