RIGHT TO REGISTER
The members of the Association must have legal capacity. Anyone who, upon judicialdecision, has been deprived of the right to freely establish a cooperation or association ofpersons cannot be a member of the Association. Any action conducted before or after thesubmission of the application form may be considered, by the Board of Directors, as inconsistent with the purposes of the Association. It may, therefore, be a reason for rejecting themember’s application. Membership status is of personal character and is attributed to the members onthe day of listing in the Association’s Registers.
