You think the C3S should definitely become a reality? Then join in and actively design the next gen collecting society with us. There are different levels where your commitment is welcome:

Our email list (the swarm) is the central information platform. Subscribe to it and keep up to date with what’s happening in C3S. Here you can also share news and stories that may be of interest to C3S. Of course you can also find us on Facebook. Become part of the community and help spread our idea!

→ Near You
→ facebook

Concrete goals such as membership expansion, marketing or the organisation of events are organised in working groups. Here you can directly contribute yourself and your skills. The work is organized in our forum as well as in web-pads. Meetings are realized as telephone conferences via our server. You want to spit in your hands and start in a working group? Get in touch with us with the keyword “Participate in C3S working groups”:

If you are already regular or investing member of C3S, you can become active in one of our commissions. This is about the central topics of a collecting society such as collecting agreement, tariff systems, distribution keys or membership fees. We are looking for committed and competent staff members who want to immerse themselves in these topics with us. They are the basis for the successful start of C3S as a collecting society.

The Board of Directors is a body elected by the General Meeting of Shareholders that deals with the greater strategic picture. This includes the management of the commissions, networking, and the legal and business management fundamentals. You can find a list of the current members of the Board of Directors here. If you can fancy working in this committee, please contact us by e-mail at with the keyword “Participation in the C3S Board of Directors”.

You want to help to create the technical framework of a collecting society from scratch and at the same time develop open source software? You can participate in exactly this ambitious project here! Every piece of software we develop at C3S is released on Github under a free license. See here for details.
