Anyone, who shares SwB’s aims and abide by SwB’s guidelines, can become a member. The national association, the regional branches, their Annual General Meetings or leaders cannot impose individual or collective legal or financial liabilities other than membership fees on the members.
There is room for everyone!
The only formal demands are loyalty to SwB’s regulations and agreed contributions. Experience shows that there are various levels of membership engagement, and this engagement is commendable on every level. For instance:
Seniors, such as craftsmen, farmers, architects, teachers and designers, who put their professional skills at our disposal, and who are prepared to travel in order to share their expertise.
Seniors with similar skills, who DO NOT wish to travel, but will advise, give guidance and put their networks at our disposal.
Seniors, who will lend a helping hand in other ways here in Denmark, e.g. at events.
Seniors or others, who support SwB without committing to actively helping; but contribute with membership fees or donations.
All members provide valuable and important resources!
The Senior Concept.
The word “senior” is now commonly used. There are more and more Danes, who have the physical and mental energy, which in the past characterized much younger people. In earlier times, old age was synonymous with reduced physical abilities, ill health and infirmity. This is no longer the case for many seniors. Seniors command respect, both socially and culturally. It is, however, a big challenge to act outside one’s former business sphere and without an organizational support hierarchy. This requires a mental readjustment by the individual, and in this respect SwB provides an opportunity for personal development.
