CPDC Membership is comprised of organizations and individuals across CARICOM civil society and includes a diverse network of sectors. At present, CPDC is made up of 33 members; 4 of which are individual members.
A Non- Governmental Organisation (NGO) can become a full member of CPDC and is afforded the rights to vote at the CPDC biennial assembly. A full member can be a national or regional network or an unaffiliated NGO. This type of membership allows organisations to sit on the CPDC Board of Directors and is renewed every two years.
An Associate member enjoys all the benefits of membership but is not eligible to vote at the CPDC biennial assembly or sit on the Board of Directors. This type of membership is for two years and is afforded to an organisation affiliated with a national or regional network that is also a member of CPDC. Associate membership permits organisations to partner with CPDC and influence its work programme.
An individual member is afforded all the benefits of membership but is not eligible to vote at the CPDC biennial assembly or sit on the Board of Directors. This type of membership is renewed every two years.
CPDC both directly and through its members, works with groups of farmers, rural people, women, youth, church members, artists, researchers, professionals, media workers, small business people and policy makers.
