Memberships

 

General membership (€10)

A general membership is a subscription for €10 - for 5 years. A general member receives a CSA-EUR membership card that could be used to receive special discounts at various establishments in Rotterdam. Also, general members are granted access to business events for the whole year.

 

Bronze membership (€109)

A bronze membership can only be purchased once someone holds a general membership. The duration of the bronze membership is one trimester. Next to the benefits of a general membership, members can participate in one language course within the duration of the bronze membership, members can participate in a city trip (held in trimester 3), join business events and special cultural events, receive a 10% discount for the annual study trip if successfully selected. Language courses are provided for the languages Dutch and Mandarin. Access to the city trip is still valid for trimester 3, even if the bronze membership has expired already. If the study trip has already taken place, the discount can be used for the upcoming academic year. If one did not get through the selection procedure for the study trip successfully, the study trip discount cannot be used for the upcoming academic year.

Bring-a-Buddy system

Once you are a bronze, silver or gold membership holder, you can participate in the Bring-a-Buddy system. An example that illustrates the functioning of this system goes as follows: Person A signs up for an advanced, bronze, silver or gold membership through his friend Person B who is already an advanced, bronze, silver or gold member. Here, Person B receives a refund of €10 for ‘encouraging’ Person A to become a bronze, silver or gold member.
