Membership Application Process

Applicants are required to meet the membership criteria and have a CWN Member propose and second their application. If you do not know any existing CWN Members we would encourage you to attend CWN Events that are open to non-members. This will give you an opportunity to meet CWN Members and to find out more about our Network. Find out more about forthcoming events.

Joining CWN is straightforward.  Having attended at least two of our events, you will have an idea of what we offer and how we operate.    The next step is for you to complete the application form together with thoughts on your motivations to join CWN.  We will ask you for a proposer and seconder for your application.  These must be current members of CWN.

Your application will be forwarded to the Membership Committee for consideration and once through that part of the process your application will be ratified at a monthly Board meeting.  We aim to provide a fairly prompt response, dependant on timing of your application and Board meetings.
