Become a member of the Federation

Why become a member ?

By becoming a member, you get access to all the services provided by the Federation (getting news from the Federation, getting a ranking, possibility to play Go tournaments, teaching courses, etc.) and moreover you contribute also to the development of Go (material, advertising, organisation of activities...). Last but not least, it is possible to buy a goban and/or a stones set at a reduced price (via your club).

How become a member ?

You simply become a member of the Federation if you're also a member of an affiliated Belgian Go club.
You need to pay the membership fee of the Federation + the membership fees of the local club (if any) and get registered.
Please ask your club president.

Membership fee amount

The go club asks for a membership fee, of which a part is your membership fee for the Belgian Go Federation, the other part being a specific fee for the club (varying from one club to another, between 0€ to 10€, usually around 5 €).
Each year, the amount of the membership fee is decided at the Annual General Meeting.

Since 2018, the membership fee of the BGF is 20 EUR
10 EUR under 18 years old

It is possible to become a member of the Federation while not being a member of a Belgian go club. Then you have to pay 30 € the membership fee (20 €) + a small Federal "virtual club" fee (10 €) onto the BGF account IBAN : BE24-7755-9621-2238 BIC (SWIFT code): GKCCBEBB.

You may simply be
- curious about the Go Federation activities
- willing to participate as volunteer
- interested in joining the board
everyone interested to participate in the organization of the Belgium Go Federation activities is welcome !

Become a volunteer at the Federation

The Belgian Go Federation is an amateur and friendly association that is always searching for volunteers in many different areas:

- Organization of tournaments: room reservation, follow-up, refereeing
- Promotion of Go, presentation in festivals or schools...
- Infographics, Internet communication or editing tasks
- Translation Dutch/English/French
- Administrative tasks
- Pedagogy, Go teaching
- IT development, maintenance of Internet site
- Transportation, logistic and stock management
- Accounting

...

Do you have a couple of hours per week (or more) free ? Do you feel you can handle some of these tasks ?
To help the Federation, you don't need to be a Go expert: the main qualifications are enthusiasm, the ability to communicate and to perform the tasks you have chosen to handle.

Please send an email to the Federation board (board@gofed.be) and we will take care to find a place for you in our organization.
You are welcome :)
