The basis of a democratic governance structure
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 were implemented.
In 2018 the Globelics Scientific Board has approved several changes in the Globelics Constitution.
The amendments for the affiliate program, following the new terms, began to be implemented in February 2019.
Important changes were shaped to make membership criteria more flexible.
Article 2 Section 1 now states:
“Membership is individual. And it is open to all those who fulfil the following requirements:
(a) He/she has participated in at least one network activity (GLOBELICS or Regional LICS Conferences, GLOBELICS or Regional LICS Academy);
(b) He/she submits a written application to the General Secretary of GLOBELICS, by completing an application form approved by the Scientific Board that affirms broad agreement with GLOBELICS aims and objectives, as well as providing some personal and academic data;
(c) He/she has paid the annual dues. “
As stated in the constitution, membership is open to those who participated physically.
