Become a member

A FEDMA membership would provide you with an ideal forum for best practice exchange, as well as influence - and the latest information - on decisions made by the European Institutions. As new privacy laws are constantly being discussed, we understand the importance of dealing with at times an overwhelming amount of existing and new legislations at European level.

A FEDMA membership also provides access to our Legal Affairs Committee, which meets 4 times a year, with legal and marketing experts from FEDMA’s industry members and DMAs (Data and Marketing Associations) in key European countries.
