MEMBERSHIP

As a member of the European Business Chamber of Rwanda, you will be joining a community of the country’s foremost businesses.

 

Within EBCR there are three levels of membership:

 

Blue membership (for enterprises)

Blue membership is the basic membership of EBCR, open for companies of all sizes meeting the membership criteria. Blue membership gives right of access to the EBCR networking events for one delegate of the company, invitations to incidental events, the newsletter and one vote for Board elections. Blue membership costs €100 per year.

 

Star membership (for enterprises)

Star members are also corporate members and have all the rights of blue members, but they can take an additional delegate to the networking events. More importantly, they are invited for the quarterly closed-door policy meetings and the half-yearly advocacy meetings with high level officials of the Government of Rwanda and members of the European Diplomatic Corps.  Star membership costs €500 per year.

 

Associate membership (for enterprises and individuals)

Associate members have all the rights of Blue members, except that they have no right to vote in Board elections. Associate membership is open for Rwandan businesses, not necessarily owned by Europeans, but doing substantial business in European countries.

  • Businesses registered in a European country doing business in Rwanda,
