Who can join?
MDN welcomes self-employed consultants and trainers who work primarily with voluntary sector 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. If you have not been freelance for two years you are welcome to join as an Associate member and upgrade at a later date.
How to apply
When you apply we ask for evidence of your skills and experience which demonstrates how you meet these criteria. If you have a comprehensive company website that is usually sufficient but you can also email us your CV. 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 £90 and you can pay by BACS or on line with Pay Pal (including credit cards).
Protecting your data
We include member’s contact details in our on-line Consultants Directory and will check with you which information on your application form you would like made public to enable contact from potential clients or collaborators, and which information you would like kept private.
