Dear All

You will recall that the Executive Committee and the Governing Board agreed the present fee structure of the EAC is, after 25 years, no longer fit for purpose. The proposal was agreed and accepted at the Governing Board in Milan 2016 and this letter is to remind everyone that the new fee structure comes into force on 1st January 2017.

The fee invoices will be coming out shortly and the Executive would appreciate your help in getting the fees paid as soon as possible in order that we may carry out the work that the Governing Board has approved including arranging and running the conference in Athens 29th to 30th April 2017.

To remind you, I have detailed the new fee structure below but as a quick summary it was decided that:-

  1. Every NA; NCC; EWO & General Member who have individual counsellors on their register will pay a flat fee plus a small fee for every registered counsellor member of that organisation. The annual fee for each individual counsellor member is €4 with a maximum of €5000 in any year.

  2. To aid administration both in the EAC and the Organisations there will be no need to submit personal details of the individual counsellor members. Each Association will submit the number of counsellor members registered with them.

  3. When an individual registered member applies for the EAC accreditation the sponsoring organisation will submit an application form on their behalf as proof that the sponsoring organisation confirms the EAC Accreditation criteria has been achieved. The annual fee for accreditation is €25.


I am sure you will agree that in supporting the EAC under the new funding the EAC will be able to offer greater support in the development of counselling in Europe by way of Conferences, Research and other member benefits which we have been unable to offer due to diminished funding in the past.

The new scheme meets the criteria of our principles: - Fairness; Solidarity and Proportionality.

Kind regards
