Become a member

You can become a member of BeFamily if your spouse or partner works in the Belgian Federal Public Service (FPS) Foreign Affairs’ external career.

Five reasons why becoming a member today is important (and it’s easy):

  1. ​By becoming a member, you express your support for a good family policy. A family policy that enables every family member to thrive, in Brussels and abroad.
  2. As a member, you have a voice in the SPF Foreign Affairs family policy through BeFamily.
  3. Your vote matters. Being a member means that you can vote on BeFamily as an association (incl. the approval of board members) and our position on family policy issues.
  4. You can easily connect with other partners and families via the member directory, social media, events etc. It’s a great way to socialise, share experiences and find answers to your questions.
  5. You get access to the latest information about family policy dossiers and access the resources we put together for you on a broad range of relevant topics (employment on posting, starting your own company, psychological support, resources for children etc.)
