INDIVIDUAL OR ORGANISATIONAL MEMBERSHIP?

Individual members are private persons who support the mission, vision, and objectives of the EFRJ. They can be pioneers in restorative justice (RJ) in their country, or professionals interested in RJ but not necessarily working in an organization or institution involved in RJ, or students.
Organisational members are governmental departments, institutions, universities or organisations working at the local, regional, national or international level to implement or promote services, research, training or lobbying activities in the field of RJ and related areas.

FULL OR ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP?

Full members have voting rights, are active in the organisational changes, and they can be nominated to become a Board member. This means that full members play an active role and have responsibilities in organisational matters.
Associate members enjoy the same benefits as full members and pay the same the fee, but they have no voting rights and they cannot be nominated to become a Board member. Associate members are generally members that prefer to be less active in the organisational issues.

The status (full or associate member) can be easily changed by sending an email to the Secretariat asking for the change. In the event of full members not using their right to vote (including a proxy vote) for several consecutive years, the Secretariat will automatically change their status from full to associate member until further notice. This is to ensure that active full members can propose and vote on organisational and constitutional changes.
