Associated members
Besides the regular membership for shipowners, the KVNR provides the option to join as an associated member. To date there are around 100 associated members.
This type of membership is intended for organisations and companies affiliated with the shipping industry in the Netherlands but not managing vessels on their own. Associated members have more or less the same rights and obligations as members. The major difference being that they are not allowed to vote during the Annual General Meeting.
