How do we use your membership fees?
Yearly membership fees will cover association’s upkeep costs. We also eagerly drive our agenda further by expanding the usage and growing of chilies on suitable medias, participating in various events and fairs and spreading wisdom about chilies whereever we are.
Moreover, we arrange many kinds of yearly meetings and events for our members. These are usually free of charge including any food served.
The Association also tries to source seeds of special chili varieties, grows rare varieties in isolated condition for seed production and tries to multiplicate pure seeds of those varieties for spreading among the community.
Being a part of association is being a part of a community. We invite you to join our activity!
Benefits of being a member
Our biggest benefit of course, is the legendary Chilin Poltteessa magazine which will be mailed to our members every year.
Additionally our members will get a brand new, shiny member card which fits nicely in your wallet.
