How to become a member of ICPS?
According to the constitution of ICPS there are two kinds of membership for organizations. They are:
Organisational MembersNational Voluntary or Governmental Organisations based in any country and concerned with the problems of persons with Cerebral Palsy are subject to election by the Executive Committee (EC) or by the Society in General Meeting who shall be entitled to determine the criteria for admission to membership. Each Organisational Member is entitled to send one representative to any General Meeting.
Associate Organisational Members
Any organisation with a proper interest concerned with the problems of persons with Cerebral Palsy who desire to further the aims of the Society are subject to election by the Executive Committee or by the Society in General Meeting who shall determine the criteria for admission to membership. Each Associate Organisational member shall be entitled to send one representative to any General Meeting.
As you can see the membership conditions depend on how you see your organisation. Organisational Members are mostly national disability organizations. Associate Organisational Members are other organisations â€“ like rehabilitation centers etc.. The differences of the membership are voting rights and membership fee. Each of the duly appointed representatives of the Organisational Members has four votes. Each of the duly appointed representatives of the Associate Organisational Members has two votes. The Organisational Members pay Â£350 and the Associate Organisational Members Â£145.
When you want to become a member, your organisation must be a registered NGO. You need to send a copy of your Statutes and latest accounts to The Secretary General to be presented to the Executive Committee or the AGM. The organisation will be admitted to membership either by the Executive Committee or the Society at the AGM, whichever happens first.
