New Europeans is a membership association promoting European citizenship including the rights to freedom of movement, non-discrimination and the principle of solidarity in Europe.
Membership of New Europeans is open to individuals and organizations that:
- subscribe to the New Europeans mission statement
- have paid the membership fee
The work of New Europeans is organized on the basis of regional branches. New members are allocated to a regional branch by postcode.
Regional branches are affiliates of The New Europeans AISBL and therefore have a vote and a voice in the strategic direction and development of New Europeans as a whole.
Each regional branch has a team of activists who help run the branch.
The following officers of the regional branches are elected annually at the AGM of each branch:
Convenor; Administrator; Communications officer
Posts are elected on an annual basis with a maximum term of office of 3 years.
Members are able to form local branches in city or rural areas o take forward the work of New Europeans.
The structure of local branches is the same as for regional branches.
As organizations, local branches can affiliate to The New Europeans AISBL in their own right.
