How to join the MedPAN network
Participation in the activities of the network is restricted to legal entities. Two forms of membership are provided for that could apply to your organization:
If your organisation is in charge of managing one or several Marine Protected Areas, you may join as a member. As such, you will be given the right to vote in all of MedPAN’s official proceedings.
The membership fee has deliberately been fixed at the low level of 50 euros so that it does not constitute an obstacle for organisations to join. Organisation can also make a provision of resources with MedPAN, thereby waiving the membership fee.
If your organisation is not in charge of managing an MPA, you can join as a partner. The partner status enables you to participate in the MedPAN’s General Assembly and possibly in its Board of Directors as well as in the Advisory Committee but without voting rights.
Please look at MedPAN Internal Rules to check if your organisation is eligible to join as a partner and to receive more information on the related involvement.
