Member Organizations


Membership is open to representatives of organizations and any interested persons concerned about social development issues. Voting members are those individuals who represent organizations in Consultative Status with the UN through ECOSOC; there is one vote per organization. Individuals may be members without vote.

Membership Benefits

Members will receive notices and summaries of monthly meetings, important upcoming conferences related to social development, and meetings sponsored by the Committee on Social Development. Committee members prepare joint statements voicing the opinions of NGOs concerned with social development issues. NGOs interested in voicing their opinions on an international level can contribute ideas to these statements or sign on to the agreed Committee statements. After these statements have been circulated for endorsements, they are submitted to appropriate UN bodies and become official documents.
