Does my yearly membership elongate itself or do I have to do anything?

It elongates itself. You will be notified about money being deducted and you get a deadline of signing off. If you don't take action, it will elongate itself.


How do I sign up?

You can simply sign up here. If you however want to sign up using cash then, you can register manually either at the board room or by downloading a form from the website (see documents). After that, you will have to print it, fill it in and give it to a board member, put it in the CognAC mail box or send it by e-mail to registration@svcognac.nl.


Can I sign up online?

Yes! Either via this link or the registration form. For the form, you can navigate to the documents, download the registration form, fill it in and send it by e-mail to registration@svcognac.nl.


Is anything obligatory?

Can I bring a friend to an activity who is not a CognAC member?

It depends on the activity. If spots are limited, we give priority to CognAC members. However, if there are enough spots available, you can ask the organizing committee or board whether it is allowed. It is common that non-members pay a higher entrance fee than members.
