Becoming a Member:
Individual Membership begins the day you attend an orientation, complete a membership application, and pay your first year's dues. Organizations may also apply to the Board for membership, which requires that the Executive Director and 5 founding individual members sign an application saying they are committed to the beliefs of 482Forward.
Rights and Responsibilities as a Member:
As an active member of 482Forward you will be given the opportunity to join an Action Team or a Network Committee. If you want to propose a new campaign, you have to bring it to your Action Team or Network Committee
first. Once they agree, they can bring the proposal to the entire 482Forward membership for approval. Voting will occur at the spring and fall conferences. All active members have the right to vote on campaign proposals, usually at the semi-annual 482Forward conferences. Time -sensitive campaigns that are in between the conferences may require special Board approval instead.
