    The VP-membership has an important task within FIVA.

    The main task of the VP-Membership is to scrutineer the applications of potential new members and give and advise regarding their admittance.

    Any Club, Federation or Association wishing to join FIVA must send an application to the FIVA Secretariat, with a copy to VP-Membership if possible. Then VP-Membership will investigate to see if the applicant meets all requirements for FIVA membership as listed in the FIVA Statutes.

    The VP-Membership reports to the General Committee on applications and other membership issues referred to him/her that decides on the admission.

    If the application is incomplete or incorrect the applicant is asked to provide the correct information or the needed information. In case of doubt, the VP-Membership can propose to accept a new member under certain conditions. Such a proposal is also decided upon by the General Assembly.

    If an applicant is accepted under certain conditions, its the task of the VP-Membership to see that the conditions are met within the time set for such an applicant.

    The FIVA statutes give a list of the information FIVA needs for a correct application for FIVA membership. To make this more easily accessible, a checklist of the information needed has been made. This checklist can be downloaded from this website.


    The VP-Membership is equipped to answer questions regarding membership and applications. It is however not equipped to answer all kind of legal questions from outside FIVA. Problems regarding the FIVA Statutes, Bylaws or Codes can only be addressed via the FIVA General Secretary.
