As mentioned on our home page; our network is NOT managed by one person or one company but is run by multiple members. A management panel will run the network consisting of 7 members. 5 of the founding members will remain on the panel at all times with 2 members being appointed to the management panel each year.
Each of our panel are regional representatives of our network. Feel free to contact any of our panel members directly through the link to their membership page.
Costs & Fees
We are running this network on a cost, not profit basis. This means the more members we have the less our overall costs will be. The only costs we will initially incur will be a contribution towards the web administration, including monthly newsletters, and credit checks for new members.
An excel file will be uploaded to the forums regularly to share all costs and contributions from members, along with the current balance.
We want this to be open for all members to have sight of and even comment on. We would not expect annual fees to be more than $350-450 per region (with the exception of AGM costs) once we have 20 or more members.
Our view on our AGM is that we want them to be beneficial for the network and its members. With all the panel members being part of previous networks we feel that the expense of a gala dinner in a high end hotel is an unnecessary expense that is not always productive.
We will plan a 2/3 day AGM that includes a meeting day reviewing and discussing the network constructively with all members, followed by individual meeting days and two evening get togethers.
