Step 1 – A Statement of Intent
Interested organizations and individuals are encouraged to contact GNI at [email protected] to express their interest in GNI membership before submitting a SOI. When submitting a SOI, please follow the criteria per constituency as described on this page.
Step 2 – Follow Up
Once we have received your SOI, GNI staff may contact you to discuss membership in more detail, if your application is viable.
Step 3 – Consultation with existing GNI participants
We will talk with members of the constituency that you plan to join. For example, if you are an academic, we will consult with the academic constituency. As a next step, your application materials will be reviewed by our multistakeholder Membership Committee.
Step 4 – Decision by the GNI Board
As a final step, the Executive Director will make a recommendation to the GNI Board members who will then vote on your application.
Step 5 – Notification of the GNI Board’s decision
You will be contacted by the Executive Director to inform you of the GNI Board’s decision.
