Organisational membership

All organisations in the NGO AOD and related sectors will be considered for membership by the Board. There are two types of membership available – Ordinary Membership and Associate Membership.

Ordinary Membership is open to NGOs and services, whose primary purpose is to reduce the alcohol and drug related harm to individuals, families and the community. Ordinary Members are entitled to vote at the Annual General Meeting.

Associate Membership is open to NGOs and services who may have a primary mission other than reducing alcohol and drug related harm, but are nonetheless involved in some way in the reduction of alcohol and drug related harm to individuals, families and the community. Associate Members will receive notices of the Annual General Meeting and are encouraged to attend and provide input into discussions however, associate members do not have voting rights.

Membership fees are based on the annual income of the organisation, payable at the start of each financial year. Membership applications are invited throughout the year, with fees determined on a pro-rata basis. As at 1 July 2015 both Ordinary Membership and Associate Membership fees for organisations which receive government (Commonwealth and/or State) of:
