New membership labels for 2016

All ESC Associations have aligned their membership labels. Concretely, this means that the membership levels change their names but the benefits remain the same.

Discover the new membership names:

  • HFA Basic becomes HFA Regular
  • HFA Online becomes HFA Silver
  • HFA Full becomes HFA Gold
  • Fellows of the HFA retain their title

You'll notice some changes in your MyESC account too - it has been redesigned to present your personal information clearly and concisely.

Membership is available for 2016. Each level has its own advantages and we encourage you to choose the one that suits you best.
