Participation fee

The annual all-inclusive GCN membership fee amounts EUR 825 ex.VAT in 2021.

For this all-inclusive annual membership fee you have (free) access to the the General Counsel Annual Conference (in May), the General Counsel Fall Conference (in October) and you can join one of our local General Counsel peer-to-peer groups, among which one English spoken group for non-native General Counsel that work and live in the Netherlands. Each group meets at least twice a year. So you are able to participate in five meetings a year. It’s a great way to get to know other General Counsel.

You also get personal access to the protected part of the GCN website (members-only-login) where you can share and find relevant information in our knowledge database, the GCN Diamond Box, on the GCN Forum and will find relevant and current GC vacancy/jobs and specially selected courses for GC, among which the General Counsel Executive Program.

You will also receive all (minimum of six a year) online General Counsel NL Newsletters and the yearly General Counsel NL Magazine. And you may of course participate in the GCN LinkedIn group.

You can participate at and will get access to the outcome of the General Counsel NL Benchmark Survey and we will keep you informed about the General Counsel Award.

If you are an international (expat) GC working and living in the Netherlands, GCN can help you to get acquainted to the Dutch legal world. We have a really neat group of expat GC gathered who are willing to help and share information with you as well.
