The Constitutions of the Asthma Foundations provide for the creation of various classes of members, whose rights and obligations are set out there. For some categories of members the obligations include the payment of an annual fee, while others created as life members are not obliged to pay such a fee.
Historically, many of our current members have regarded their annual fee as a donation to support the charitable work of the Foundation.
The Foundation is constitutionally obliged to keep records of its members, provide them with notice of key events such as the Annual General Meeting, and with copies of key information such as the Annual Financial and other Reports. These obligations have been met, although we have moved a lot of our communication to an online method.
The members are the moral owners of the not-for-profit Foundation, in that no dividends or financial recompense can be provided to them under our rules.
Membership is one of the sustaining relationships for an organisation such as ours.
If you are interested in membership, please contact your local Foundation by calling 1800 ASTHMA (1800 278 462).
