Become A Member

Joining EDA is an affirmation that a person understands this work and wants it to succeed. And just as the depth of one’s understanding changes over time, so too will the level of their involvement in our work. Acknowledging this, we have created two levels of membership and encourage you to choose the one that is right for you.

Supporting Members receive our monthly newsletter and are invited to be as engaged as they want with our work, supporting it when and if they choose with time and energy and/or financial donations.

Active Members take a further step in their engagement by joining our Governing Circle. This group has the privilege of voting in our leadership elections, ratifying appointments and participating in referenda on matters of general concern to the organization. Three active members serve on the Board of Trustees as At-Large Trustees, and Active Members are also involved in EDA’s working groups. Finally, Active Members pay an annual membership fee of $35 as an important sign of their commitment to our work.

Whether you have time to participate or not, sign up to receive our newsletter. By doing so you ensure our ongoing, monthly contact, letting you know where progress is possible and how you might help.
