Criteria for Membership

The Foundation’s Executive Director will add this request for membership to the agenda of the upcoming Allied Support Group meeting. The organization may make a brief presentation to review the mission, activities and membership of their organization at this meeting. A simple majority vote of all voting members of the Allied Support Group is required to elect new members.
