More about our membership benefits

As a member, you'll get access to our team and resources for your ideas. Regular member sessions with our team will give you the inside track on our projects and help you learn about creating democratic change in your communuity. We're developing an interactive member-only website where you can join other members to discuss and develop thinking on all forms of democracy and participation. You'll also get priority invitations to a range of events, and a ticket to our General Assembly, held every year in June.

Most important of all, you'll be part of a community of members and our team who are working to build the systems that will keep democracy running through the 21st century and beyond.
