The Membership Committee reviews and creates minimum quality standards for membership of EFMD. Criteria are constantly reviewed for the different categories of membership, thus monitoring the existing membership and those potential members who apply.
The membership application form should be accompanied by a completed questionnaire about the organisation, its interests and expectations, as well as by two references from the existing membership (referees must be Deans). This complete application file is reviewed by the Membership Review Committee, which sits generally three times a year and recommends membership to the Board of Trustees for approval. The Board passes its proposals to the Annual General Assembly which meets in June. It is during this Assembly that membership is officially ratified.
Companies, consultancies, public sector organisations and executive development centres are requested to complete a membership application form and a questionnaire about the organisation, its composition, interests and expectations. Applications from corporate members are reviewed by the EFMD Director General and are then officially ratified by the EFMD Annual General Assembly.
