How to become a CCN associate
1. Fill in the form on the CCN website
On the CCN website you will find a link to a form (located on a secure server) that you must fill in with your personal details.
2. Make the payment
The first year you will have to pay the fee by transferring it to the account number (Caixa d’Enginyers) on the form page. From then on, the CCN will collect the annual fee always by direct debit. The first time you can also pay the fee in cash at the club’s office, located in Barcelona (Pere Vergés street, 1, floor 11 office 10). Office hours are Wednesdays from 7 to 9 p.m., except July and August.
3. Send a photo
To make the cards you need a photograph (such as the DNI) that can be sent by e-mail to email@example.com , by post to the address mentioned, or delivered in person to the office.
Benefits of associates
So what are the benefits of joining the CCN as an associate? We present them below as they appear on the club’s website (with some additions), so that you have more information at your fingertips:
1. You will have access to the Young Naturists’ WhatsApp group for associates . It is a group reserved for participants of Young Naturists who are also associated with the CCN, where issues about the internal organization of the group are most often discussed and where the activities are first proposed and announced.
2. You will receive an annual newsletter . Members receive a CCN newsletter in physical format each year, called Naturism, with information on the activities and outings carried out by the association, articles and opinions of members (also ours!), news related to the naturist movement and assessments of naturist centers in Catalonia, Spain, Europe and elsewhere. A complementary e-newsletter is now also sent more frequently.
3. You will have access to certain naturist centers. Associates receive a naturist card or passport from the International Naturist Federation (INF). This card is essential to enter some naturist resorts and to enjoy discounts in others.
4. You will get discounts on meetings and activities organized by the CCN and other associations that belong to the FEN and the INF, and on the entrance fee to the Picornell nudist swimming pools in Barcelona. Some of the activities coordinated by the CCN are:
- Trips to beaches of nudist tradition in Catalonia.
- Sports activities such as beach volleyball.
- Inland hikes with skinny dippings.
- Meetings at national and foreign naturist resorts.
- Organization of massage workshops, yoga, theater, photography, body painting, etc.
- Talks, conferences and assemblies on naturism or related topics.
- Claim or awareness actions.
- Parties, festivals and other social events to keep in touch with other associates throughout the year.
5. You will participate in the promotion and defense of naturism. Being associated with the CCN and at the same time federated with the FNI makes you participate in the defense of naturism in Catalonia and worldwide. We are a minority and we need an organization that promotes and defends naturism. It should be remembered that membership fees are the main source of funding for the CCN association and, consequently, the basis for supporting the representation of organized naturism in Catalonia.
