Recommend us to a friend

Do you have a friend who is an engineer or a colleague who is not yet a member? Start a conversation and introduce the topic of union membership. The Union offers now a unique 3 month Satisfaction Guarantee to new members.

Many appreciate the opinion of a friend and colleague. Tell them why you are a member of the Union of Professional Engineers in Finland. When you acquire a new member, you will receive a GoGift’s gift card that is worth EUR 40.

Membership of the Union of Professional Engineers in Finland can also be recommended by Akava’s personnel representatives, such as Union stewards, liaison officers, and occupational safety and health representatives. Everyone will be rewarded.

How your colleague can become a member

You can become a member by clicking the Join us! Button presented throughout the website, or you can go straight to the electronic admission form at the end of this page.

In addition to personal and contact details, we will ask

  • the applicant to enter education and graduation information
  • the membership organization they wish to join.

Most of the options are already available in the drop-down menu on the admission form.

Before continuing to the form, you should check

  • the address of your current employer
  • the start date of your employment relationship
  • the prevailing collective agreement.

Once you have all the necessary information at hand, it only takes you a moment to apply.

How your colleague enter you as a recommender

In the Additional Information section of the form, there is a place for the name of the person that recommended you. In addition to the name, either a membership number or an email address is required for the person who made the recommendation, so that the recommendation reward can be sent to the right person.

GoGift Gift Card (SuperLahjakortti)

Each person who acquires a new full member receives a gift card worth EUR 40 by email. It is therefore important that the person recommending a new member has their membership information up to date. You can log in to your Member pages here.

The balance on the Gift Card can be used at the one time or used in several different transactions. You can also invest the amount to purchase a Museum Card, Elisa’s audio and e-books or, for example, in Europcar’s car rental.
