What are the membership responsibilities and obligations?

The time spent on the Forum depends entirely on individual members. Some members actively participate in many of the meetings and working groups. Others just benefit from the Forum's exchange of information and best practice.

The Forum is not a legal entity. It is an informal alliance between its members. There are no legal obligations. Members are not required to sign any public anti-corruption commitment. However, an organisation should only join if it agrees with the objective of the Forum, which is to help create a business environment that is free from corruption.

Becoming a member does not mean that the member agrees with every statement or publication issued by the Forum.

How do I join the Forum?

You should send an e-mail to the Forum Co-ordinator providing a half page summary of your business. The Co-ordinator will circulate this information to all other Forum members, giving them two weeks to comment on the application. Objection is only permitted if the interests of the organisation are believed to be contrary to the aims of the Forum. Assuming no objection is made, applicants will be admitted to membership. The current policy of the Forum is that names of corporate members are not published. This reflects the fact that some companies are keen to work on the anti-corruption agenda, but do not wish this to be actively publicised. However, the Forum does provide the names of corporate members to potential members as they may wish to know which companies they will be co-operating with. A member is permitted to publicise the fact that it is a member. Members are not permitted to market their organisation in any way at Forum meetings.
