🤷🏼‍♀️ Who can become a member?

Everyone between the ages of 16 and 30 who can identify with the student life, can become a member of A.S.V.Gay. Most members of A.S.V.Gay study at an educational institution in Amsterdam, but you're most welcome to join if you've already graduated or if you study outside of Amsterdam. We are open to everyone: gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, queer and straight.

✅ What benefits does it have?

By becoming a member of A.S.V.Gay, you will help build a strong and positive network of gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans and queer Amsterdam students. You'll receive a discount on all A.S.V.Gay activities. In addition, as a member of our association you will be able to help develop A.S.V.Gay's mission, vision and policies: by bringing proposals to the board, by voting in meetings and by making yourself eligible for board positions.

💸 How much does it cost?

An A.S.V.Gay membership costs €60 per (academic) year and it runs from September to September. Your membership will automatically be renewed. However, you will receive a timely reminder by email to give you the opportunity to cancel your membership.

Becoming a member halfway through the year is also possible. If you become a member of A.S.V.Gay after the turn of the year, you pay €35 for the rest of the academic year. Again, your membership will automatically be renewed unless you notify us.

👥 How do I become a member?

During the year there are two moments when you can become a member:

  • from mid-August until the end of September

  • the entire month of February

During these periods all sorts of activities are organised to introduce you to the association in an accessible way and to introduce you to the members by means of a day/weekend away together with all new members. So come to the open drinks on the Wednesdays of this period, then we ensure that you can register, or register via the site.

⏳ I'm in my first year, won't it cost me too much time?

Not necessarily! As mentioned, we do not have any mandatory activities. You can make it as busy as you want! Exam week ahead? Then you can safely skip an activity. Generally speaking we take busy periods into account in terms of activities as many of our members are students.

👀 I'm a little nervous about going to my first activity. Now what?

No problem! Many new members experience this! However, we have devised the borrel buddies for this. You will meet up with a nice member of A.S.V.Gay in advance and they will introduce you to the association. You can register for a borrel buddy via vertrouwenspersoon@asvgay.nl

❌ How do I cancel my membership?

You can cancel your membership at A.S.V.Gay until the 31st of July. Send an email to the secretary of A.S.V.Gay with your details, and you will receive a confirmation of your deregistration. No refund of your contribution is given.
