MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES, CONDITIONS & CRITERIA
Organizations meeting the criteria in one of the following two categories are invited to apply for Membership in Broome County COAD:
FULL MEMBERSHIP (Voting)
Full Member status may be granted to any organization in or serving Broome County, with either a stated or implied policy of committing resources, without discrimination, to meet the needs of people affected by disaster. Resources may be people, money, equipment, goods and services, facilities or any other commodity which may be needed during the often challenging conditions associated with disaster. Full members have the privilege of voting on organizational business, including electing board officers, board members, and amending organizational bylaws.
AFFILIATE MEMBERSHIP (Non-voting)
Affiliate status may be granted to any individual or organization with disaster planning and operations responsibilities or capabilities, or an interest in such. Affiliate members do not have any voting rights within the organization.
**Member organizations are entitled and encouraged to have more than one representative participating in meetings, committees and other activities. It must be noted, however, that member organizations receive only one vote regardless of how many representatives participate in organizational activities. Mailings will be sent to the primary contact and may be duplicated for internal distribution.
