What is the subscription fee?

The registration fee and the annual subscription amount (according to the initial calculations that the volunteer group had made) for the first year is set at:

Special case: For related members or partners (relevant documents to demonstrate the relationship between them, are necessary), the second person’s registration and subscription will be as follows:
A) registration (40 €)
