After a Jan. 2010 EO Council decision, Core membership implies an annual in-kind contribution from 2010 on. The minimal annual in-cash contributions has not changed (5000 €). In kind contributions are welcome, but they are not accounted for in EO annual accounts and do not offset in-cash contribution or provide voting rights except in very exceptional cases (where they can be precisely identified and assessed ex ante, have a clear value for all members, etc.) and after Council approval. Members choosing not to contribute in cash become "Invited Members". Invited Members can participate in activity at their own expense; they do not have voting rights and cannot lead EO activities.
