Membership

How do I find out more about IRN and how do I join?

Benefits of Membership

Membership fees are kept deliberately low to encourage wider and broader membership. As a member you will access the services of the website, information about conferences and events, receive our newsletter and gain lower fees for future conferences. You may also be invited to help represent the IRN at national and international events where the IRN is invited to send representatives. Last, but not least, you will be helping to build a new and exciting organisation which aims to help rural communities find a better voice in national and international affairs during this time of immense change.

Types of Membership

Any individual person with an interest in the IRN can be an individual member.

An individual member has the right to attend and vote at any meeting of the Members; provided that such individual member shall not be entitled to vote at any meeting of the Association if its fees are more than one month in arrears at the date of the meeting. Each individual member shall be entitled to one vote.
  2. An individual member will have such further rights as are determined by resolution of the Board from time to time.
