Our Membership Structure

The membership benefits and contributions listed are suggestions (not requirements) meant to help shape membership and help guide those who are looking for a more structured way to participate.

There are three membership categories:

Core members

Core members invest the most time in the network and receive the most benefits.

Ally members

Ally members are involved in similar types of activities and receive similar benefits as core members; however, their less frequent involvement results in fewer benefits.

GrassTops members

GrassTops members represent larger institutional interests. They may attend meetings and stay up to date about and support but are primarily interested in collaborating with the network as an institutional partner.

"CSLN is at the grassroots but also has the capacity to reach decision-makers in order to influence change that way."
