Membership Application

We accept applications for Associate Membership from July 1st – September 1st annually. Organizations and individuals are welcome to apply.

Associate Membership is the first step in the membership process. This is a probationary membership of 12 months after which the organization or individual will be eligible to apply for General Membership. This allows the applicant time to better understand the network and for FNUSA Members and staff to better understand the work of the applicant.

  • The FNUSA Steering Committee will accept Associate Membership applications until September 1, 2021.
  • FNUSA Steering Committee Members and staff will conduct phone interviews with all applicants by October 1, 2021.
  • All decisions will be made at the annual FNUSA Steering Committee meeting in November 2021.
  • Applicants will be notified of the Committee’s decision in December 2021.
  • All applications will be reviewed and considered based on the information provided either on the application form or during the interview with FNUSA Steering Committee Members and staff, and information available on the applicant’s website and other public statements and materials.
  • If applicants are not offered Associate Membership in 2021, they are welcome to reapply in a future membership cycle.

Please begin your application process by thoroughly reviewing the FNUSA Membership Eligibility, Benefits, and Expectations below. Questions can be sent to membership@freedomnetworkusa.org.

The Value of Membership

Joining the Freedom Network USA (FNUSA) brings a host of benefits and opportunities to our members.

All members receive reduced rates for our annual conference, access to members-only training and technical assistance and professional development opportunities. General Members gain access to leadership positions, the Speakers Bureau, and voting rights in the network. However, many members find the intangible benefits of membership to be the most important. FNUSA acts as a convener, bringing individuals out of their silos to connect with colleagues and learn from experts across the country.

FNUSA also lifts up your expertise and experience to national prominence.  Whether you work for a small nonprofit service provider, a large organization with broad priorities, or are an academic working on these issues through your research, membership in the FNUSA will help you to connect with advocates around the country who face the same challenges with whom you can share your success.
