Associations can become members of DFHF by sending a letter and its articles of association to the board. The statutes must state that the association is a non-profit non-profit association that is open to everyone. When the board has accepted the association, the association pays the annual fee. The annual fee consists of a fixed and a variable part. The fixed fee is SEK 300. In addition to the fixed fee, a variable part is paid that is a minimum of SEK 1050 or SEK 15 per member, but a maximum of SEK 7800. The variable annual fee is distributed with thirteen kronor per member to the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and two kronor to DFHF. Foundations and other associations that want to promote the union's purposes can become members in the same way as associations and then pay the fixed fee plus the lowest variable fee, currently SEK 2500.

Times of change
We can read about the emergence of Swedish democracy, about women's struggle as well as Gustav Vasa's history in various forms of truth and legend, in this yearbook, which deals with anniversaries which give
perspectives and different ways of seeing and interpreting our history. Maybe it is the celebration of an event that gives us a historical perspective on our existence? One of this year's anniversaries is women's suffrage, or rather the equal and universal suffrage, which was also about women's equality with men. When we go really far back in history to celebrate what has happened, events can become our own special story that through centuries has been embroidered, given appropriate additions and traded to take the form of a legend. The event may not even tell you about something that really happened. This is exactly the case with Gustav Vasa's adventures in Dalarna in the 1520s. Events, real or fictional, came to life around the turn of the last century and are consolidated through
memorial stones and celebrations. In this way, the story, legend or anecdote lives on. We listen and marvel.
