New Membership Model for 2018!

Although Common Europe has served the IT community for decades, it has primarily been an umbrella organization serving other Common-related user groups at the various country levels throughout Europe. Although our country user groups remain a very important and key member cateory, we are pleased to offer memberships the other organizations and individuals as listed below. In fact, country user groups are still so very important to Common Europe that we encourage to join those organizations if they exist and if practical. Any member of a Common Europe Country User Group is automatically considered a member of Common Europe! To see if a Common Europe user group exists in your area, please visit our Country User Groups page.
