Be A Member
Why become a member?
Members are the heart of AWARE. All our work is intended to represent the views, values and concerns of our members, who have the final say in determining the direction of the organisation. Every year, we hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) where the board and staff of AWARE present our work to members to review. The Board itself is also chosen through voting by members at every second AGM – the next vote is in 2014.
By becoming a member, you add weight to our calls for gender equality and social change. When AWARE speaks, we do so on behalf of our members, so the more members we have, the more influential our voice becomes. Members also help to support the organisation financially through an annual subscription. These are important forms of support, especially from people who wish to assist our work but may not have the time to volunteer.
We generally ask our volunteers to become members as well.
In addition, members also receive benefits such as invitations to events, discounts on fees for some of our events and courses, and regular updates on our work. And if you are a member with at least two years’ to go on your membership, you can receive one of our exciting membership cards – which carry discounts at a range of participating shops and cafes!
If you would like more information about membership, please do not hesitate to contact us.
