Who can join?
MDN welcomes self-employed consultants and trainers who work primarily with voluntary organisations, who specialise in management, governance or organisational development and have done so for at least two years. If you are unsure if you meet the membership criteria please check here.
How to apply
When you apply for membership we ask you to provide evidence of your skills and experience which demonstrates how you meet our eligibility criteria. If you have a comprehensive company website that is often sufficient but you can also email us your CV and/or publicity material. Please email to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can post to our address below – just let us know that the details relates to your on-line application. As part of the application we also ask for an overview of your work – if your application is successful this will be used to create your initial profile in our Consultants Directory.
Our membership year runs from 1 January but if you apply after 1 October you will receive the additional three months of that year free. Annual membership costs just £86 and you can pay on-line by BACS or Pay Pal (including credit cards). If you prefer to pay by cheque please send it MDN, PO Box 63494, London SE4 9DA. We will process your application as soon as we receive your cleared payment.
