APACD membership is not transferable. Passing on one’s rights and duties as a member of the organisation is not permissible. If you are accepted as a full member, it is you as natural person who is entitled to member’s rights and duties, not your company, even if they pay the fee according to an internal agreement. As such, your membership does not end when you undertake new employment and your new company does not want to pay the fee. This holds true, except in the following case: a legal entity is accepted as a supporting member, and has named you to act on its behalf in exercising its rights. In this case, you are merely acting as an agent of the supporting member, and as such, responsibility for paying APACD membership fees lie with the organisation.
