Membership of EFNA is confined to any professional forest nursery trade association of a member state of the European Union. These organisations annually elect their delegates to the Association. Any such organisation in a member country can apply to join EFNA.
There are currently only 14 EU countries represented, because many recently joined members of the EU have only a few forest nurseries and no trade organisation representing them. If the nursery trade organisation in any EU country does not want to participate in EFNA’s activities, a private nursery from that country may attend meetings and participate in discussions as an observer (without voting rights).
The annual subscription is based upon the number of delegates who participate, with each organisation appointing as many as it wants and can afford, up to a maximum of five delegates. The current fee is 500 Euros per delegate.
