National Voices requires each member of the coalition to nominate a ‘member representative’ or ‘member rep’.
This is the person who acts as the bridge between the member organisation and National Voices. There are certain logistical duties that member reps fulfil, such as organising payment of renewals, voting in National Voices elections and being the official voice of their organisation for some National Voices surveys. Member reps also help promote our member benefits to their colleagues to make sure they get the best value out of National Voices membership.
The member rep is the main conduit for information from National Voices to their colleagues and vice versa. We also encourage everyone at our member organisations to consider getting involved through our Membership Advisory Panel, to join our member networks, and to attend our free member events.
