New* – ETAS Hardship Fund

Last January, the ETAS membership voted to convert the ‘COVID’ fund to a ‘Hardship Fund’ in order to help members in need to continue to be involved with ETAS. The Executive Committee are pleased to announce they have now outlined the details of this process. Members who are in financial difficulty and wish to request help (to renew their membership, attend the ETAS conference and/or fund their transport to a conference) are invited to use the form below.

Have you recently fallen on hard times and find it (financially) difficult to attend ETAS events?

Would you like to join ETAS but don’t have sufficient income to pay your membership?

Would you like to renew your membership but simply can’t afford it?

Would you like to come to an event by public transport as per the ETAS sustainability position, and you can’t afford it?

If you answer one (or more) of the questions above with ‘yes’, and live in Switzerland, then the Hardship Fund is for you.
