Until we launch the new platform, the membership application process is manual. Thank you for your patience.

There are two main ELLRA membership types: individual and institutional. Information about membership options is on the Membership Types page.

How to join as an individual

Full membership options information is on the Membership Types page.

The joining process for Individual Membership in February 2024 has THREE steps:

Step ONE: Document completion

  1. Download the Individual Membership Application Form.
  2. Read page 1 “Information clause on personal data processing regarding ELLRA members”.
  3. ELLRA is required to comply with the European General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR, which requires you to be informed about and consent to how your data is stored and used. Without your consent, we cannot process your application.
  4. Complete page 2, beginning with the Consent section. Make sure you complete all parts marked *.
  5. Save the form using your last name as the file name (e.g., Ellis.pdf).
  6. Send the completed form to [email protected] with ‘ELLRA Individual Membership Application’ in the email subject line.

Step TWO: Payment

  1. You will receive an automated email acknowledging your application. If you do not receive this email, please check your spam folder.
  2. As we are volunteers and everything is done by hand until we can set up the automated system, we ask that you are patient in waiting for the email with information for the payment method you have selected.
  3. The email with the payment information will include a Membership Identity Code (MIC). It is essential that you use your MIC when processing your membership payment. This helps us match you and your payment in the system.

Step THREE: Confirmation

You will receive an email confirming that you are officially an ELLRA member.

How to join as an institution 

The joining process for Institutional Membership in February 2024 has FOUR steps:

Step ONE: Within your institution

  1.  Your institution agrees to apply for membership of ELLRA and designates an Institution Contact Person to be responsible for the application process and for ELLRA to contact about the membership.
  2.  Your institution decides which Package to apply for (see three options on the Membership Types page).
  3.  Your institution decides who the named members will be – depending on the package chosen.

Step TWO: Document completion

  1. The Institution Contact Person is responsible for completing the Institutional Membership Application Form
  2. ELLRA is required to comply with the European General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR, which requires the institution and nominated members to be informed about and consent to how their data is stored and used. Without giving consent, we cannot process the application.
  3. The Institution Contact Person downloads the Institutional Membership Application Form.
  4. The Institution Contact Person reads page 1 “Information clause on personal data processing regarding ELLRA members.”
  5. The Institution Contact Person should inform all members named in the application form about the “Information clause on personal data processing regarding ELLRA members”, and ensure that they understand and agree.
  6. The Institution Contact Person completes the application form, beginning with the Consent section. They ensure all parts marked * are completed.
  7. Note: the contact person responsible for the application form may also be one of the named members. Complete your name in BOTH places in this case.

How to Apply

We denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided.
