DIFFERENCES BETWEEN AFFILIATES AND MEMBERS

Get Involved

BECOME AN AFFILIATE

An Affiliate of the RCE Greater Atlanta Network is an individual who is loosely involved in the network by occasionally attending meetings and remaining up to date with RCE communications from the Google Group. We send a monthly newsletter to the Google Group with updates and opportunities to engage. You can also share opportunities and start conversations via the Google Group.
To become an Affiliate, an individual must complete the Get Involved Form; upon completing the form, an individual will become an Affiliate of the network. Affiliates of the network are not official members nor representatives and should not be recognized as such. There are no Affiliate term limits, and Affiliates will not be recognized on the official RCE Greater Atlanta website or directory. Nevertheless, benefits include:

  • Connecting with sustainability professionals and students in the Greater Atlanta region
  • Learning of sustainability-related opportunities related to members’ fields of interest
  • Permission to share information in the Google Group

Become a member

Membership is the core of the RCE Greater Atlanta network, as members ultimately control the direction and execution of the network. Membership is open to all organizations, institutions, and individuals in the Greater Atlanta region who are interested in the network’s vision, mission, and goals and committed to our guiding principles (see our Roadmap for more details).

A member of the RCE Greater Atlanta Network is an individual who is actively involved in the network by participating in at least one action group or committee, regularly attending meetings, and remaining up to date with RCE communications from the Google Group. We would love for you to become a member of RCE Greater Atlanta, so please fill our our Membership Application to apply. Applications can be submitted at any time and will be reviewed monthly by current RCE members. Benefits include:

  • Connecting with sustainability professionals and students in the Greater Atlanta region
  • Learning of sustainability-related opportunities related to members’ fields of interest
  • Permission to share information in the Google Group
  • Access to the Membership Directory and network Google Drive
  • Ability to assume leadership positions within the network
  • Consideration for network recognition and awards

To maintain membership status, members must renew their membership yearly by completing the Annual Membership Survey sent in January by the Membership Manager.

NETWORK COORDINATION

RCE Greater Atlanta is currently creating a new governance structure to maintain the network’s core functions. Please email [email protected] if you have any questions and/or are interested in getting involved with network coordination.

Action Groups & COMMITTEES

Most RCE work is done through Action Groups. The primary function of Action Groups is to carry out the majority of our network’s ongoing projects, in ways that advance network goals and demonstrate network principles in action. Each Action Group has its own general focus and functions independently, but its interests and work may overlap with other Action Groups. To join an Action Group and get involved with their projects, check out the Action Groups page for more information.
Members also have the opportunity to support network coordination by joining different committees to create effective marketing & communications strategies, review membership applications, and increase youth engagement. Please see the bottom of the Action Groups page for more information.
