Who can be part of ADNE ?
Peoples of African descent who live in Europe, irrespective of their citizenship and nationality and who are willing to contribute to the development of Africa and economic growth in Europe and who respect the values of African Union, European Union and ADNE.
Any association, organization and natural person, member of the African diaspora in Europe that requested to become a member of ADNE and that has significant activities in the areas related to ADNE’s missions can become a member of ADNE for an indefinite period. Associate members must respect the values and principles of ADNE as defined by the ADNE Statutes and internal regulations. Associations, organizations or individuals that meet these conditions and whose membership has been approved by the Administration board and General Assembly become full members of ADNE. The application, signed by the legal representative (for associations / organizations) or the individual should be made in the form of a letter addressed to the President of the association. The President forwards the request to the Administration board that examines the admissibility before submitting the request to the General Assembly.
Full members constitute the General Assembly in which each fully paid up member has one vote. Associations / organizations appoint a representative to the General Assembly of the association. A member cannot represent more than two other members by proxy.
Benefactor members are individuals, associations or organizations that have agreed to financially support the association by paying a contribution of an amount greater than that owed by other full members or that regularly make donations to the benefit of the association.
Honorary members are personalities, both Africans and non-Africans, who provide special services to the association, support and accompany it in its growth. They can pay the contribution, but they are not required to do so. They are not bound by ADNE statutes and have no voting right.
I ask my membership to the African Diaspora Network in Europe. I will adhere to the statutes of the organisation and will pay the annual contributions.
Contributions must be paid before accession and every year before 1st of March.
