Membership in AIDA is open to any organisation that fulfils the following criteria:
Applicant organisations approved by the Executive Committee become full members of AIDA and are entitled to participate in all AIDA activities and sub-committees, vote, and stand for the posts of Chair, Vice-Chair, and Executive Committee member. Members can access services provided by the Access Coordination Unit and other UN services, and are linked to other possible security coordination support services.
Organisations that have humanitarian and development mandates, but do not fit the aforementioned criteria may petition the Executive Committee for membership.
To become an Observer, an organisation must:
Observers will receive AIDA general communications, including General Meeting notes, Country Director updates, sub-committee notes, general security communications. Observer Members may attend AIDA General Meetings, or subcommittee meetings, while in the country or at their discretion.
Observers may not run for the AIDA Chair, Executive Committee, nor vote.
The authority for accepting or rejecting applications for observer membership lies with the Executive Committee.
