Affiliate members are any other organizations that work partially or fully on issues affecting people with intellectual disability and their families. They must support our Statement of Unity.

Individual members are any person who shares the values of Inclusion International.

Only full members have a say in how Inclusion International is run.

For example:

  • full members can elect Officers and Regional Representatives to be part of the Inclusion International Council
  • full members help to set the direction of the organisation by taking part and voting on important issues at our General Assembly and other meetings. For example, adopting our strategic plan and policy positions and approving new members.

Affiliate members and individual members cannot vote or nominate Officers and Council members, but they can participate equally in all other parts of the network’s work.

For new members, the membership fees are decided by the size of your organisation.

Large, Medium and Small organisations will pay different membership fees.

The final decision about the size of your organisation will be made by our Membership Committee after reviewing your application.
