The HIC Constitution
requests organization members and individual friends to respect the objectives
and principles of the Coalition and to sustain the organization’s development
through annual contributions.
According to the HIC
By-Law first part approved in July 2014, there are different ways to
- The contributions other than dues include active
participation in the tasks and activities of the Coalition, shared by the Member
in the Member Space. These contributions are aligned with the HIC strategy and
support to the consolidation of the Coalition. The list of contributions can be
found in the HIC By-Law and in the Member Space. Each activity is completed by
gender indicators (if applicable). The Member should log into his
Member Space with
access codes to load its contributions to HIC.
- Monetary contributions are annual fees.
Each member may choose the type of contribution s/he wants to make. The
evaluation of the membership status will be based on these contributions. The
contributions give organizations
full benefits including
the one to have the Member organization’s representatives to vote and run for
the HIC Board and to set global policy for HIC in General Assembly meetings and
to vote for the election of HIC President.
