UEAPME’s full members are composed of representative national, cross-sectoral organisations representing craft activities and/or SME businesses in the different sectors of the economy within the European Union.
Full members have the right to vote. Members of the Merger Group, which is exclusively formed by members from the former EUROPMI, are also full members but have the right to one vote as a group.
UEAPME has three types of associate members.
Associate members from non-EU countries: this group is composed of national associations of craft industries and of SME businesses from European countries that are not members of the European Union.
European sectoral organisations: this category is composed of European and International organisations representing SMEs in a specific trade sector.
Other associate members: this category is made of all types of institutions and organisations, which are involved in craft and/or SME activities and support the SME family.
Associate members attend and speak at UEAPME meetings, but have no voting rights.
