PARTICIPATION REQUIREMENTS

PARTICIPATION GUIDELINES

As a peer-to-peer learning network, we have several core principles that frame our work:

  1. 1

    CRITICAL CONNECTIONS

    The quality of connections and level of trust between our members is central to our approach and drives collaboration and learning within the network.

  2. 2

    MEMBER DRIVEN

    Our work and growth are determined by members’ priorities and needs and our members define the expected outcomes and core pursuits each year.

  3. 3

    RECIPROCITY

    What you get as a member will depend on what you give: the more you participate and share, the more you learn.

To foster these principles, we ask all of our members to be actively engaged within our network as follows:

  • Attend the Annual Meeting, typically in May of each year.
  • Respond to one annual survey and additional information requests as they arise (typically 2-3 per year).
  • Be responsive and engaged via email or on our website.
  • Participate in at least one Exchange committee, workgroup, and/or Exchange Collaboration grant project each year.

ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP DUES

Dues are collected annually each April and range from $1,200 to $2,200 according to the population size of the area served by the organization seeking membership.

New members will receive a grace period of one year before dues are required. We consider attendance at our Annual Meeting the formal start of membership.

Additionally, if after the first year of membership, a member organization is unable to afford the requested dues, scholarship funds may be available to support continued participation.

APPLYING FOR MEMBERSHIP

To apply for membership as a new organization, please complete our New Member Application.

If your organization is already a member and you’d like to get involved, or if you have additional questions about joining or getting involved with our work in other ways, please reach out to Amelia Lord at amelia@giexchange.org.

Our heartfelt gratitude to our funders for their support of our mission, which makes our work possible.
