Applications for Full Membership are brought to the AGM for approval while applications for Associate Membership are decided by the Board of Dóchas.
If an organisation is eligible to be a Full Member it cannot apply for Associate Membership.
All applicants must agree to comply with the relevant Dóchas policies.
Associate Membership will be reviewed every 2 years.
Organisations committed to meeting the criteria for Full Membership may be Associate Members while so doing, but for no longer than two years.
