The basis of a democratic governance structure
Notice: the end of the Globelics Membership Program application has been postponed until 31/03/2017.
The Globelics constitution was approved by the Globelics Scientific Board in November 2016. One of the basic objectives of the constitution is to give the Globelics community a democratic governance structure based upon a strong membership.
Throughout 2017 the membership system and procedures for the election of members of the Globelics Scientific Board will be implemented.
As stated in the constitution, membership is individual and open to those who participated physically in at least two network activities during the last 4 years (Globelics or Regionalics Conferences, Globelics or Regionalics Academy), including at least one Globelics conference. Being an active member is a prerequisite for becoming a member.
Rights and duties
Globelics members have the rights to:
- Be included in the list of members at the Globelics website
- Nominate candidates to the Globelics Scientific Board
- Be nominated for the Globelics Scientific Board
- Vote for members of Globelics Scientific Board
The constitution also states that membership is conditioned to the payment of an annual fee. But for 2017 the Scientific Board has decided to set this fee at 0$. Should this change in the near future, you will have the option to remain as a member or not.
You become a member by submitting a short online application to the Globelics Secretariat whereby you expres agreement with the Globelics objectives and provide some personal and academic data.
