The Start Network is opening up the option of hub-based membership to organisations based in countries where international humanitarian aid work is undertaken (as defined by the DAC list of countries eligible for Official Development Assistance or ODA). This webinar aims to answer any questions about our next steps for membership this year and provides an overview of the process.

The new membership model will help the Start Network decentralise, diversify, and enable many more organisations to help shape the future of the network.

The Start Network is aiming to create national and regional hubs, which will be collectives of organisations in individual countries or regions. These hubs will function like local versions of the current international Start Network. When fully set up, each hub would manage its own finances, membership and governance, while being able to access services provided by the global Start Network.

Please see more details on our plan, including the benefits of the proposed hub membership system and who may be eligible to join (also available in French, Spanish, Arabic and Urdu).
