How to become a member?

An organisation wanting to join Circostrada has to express its interest by sending the application form below, that is submitted to the Steering Committe who evaluates the application using the membership criteria.
The membership is official when the organisation participates in a general meeting for the second time. An organisation that fails for 3 consecutive times to attend the General Meetings may lose its membership – the Steering Committee rules on each case.
There is no fee payable to be a member of the network.
