Our Membership

Membership

Our membership and strategic priorities are shaped through member meetings. Each year, we hold an Annual Members Meeting (AMM) to take stock of the work done in the previous year. The AMM takes place in December every year. Through this meeting, we are able to plan, learn from our previous experiences, strategize and plan for next steps.
