C4D Network membership is open to all those who are engaged or interested in the ‘Communication for Development’ field. The Network supports two types of members – Individuals and Institutions – and for both there is also the option to subscribe and increase profile as a ‘C4D Service Provider’. The Network exists for all members to access a range of community benefits.
Every individual member has a profile and the option to join country and thematic groups, and to contribute to Network content and organisation. Individual members include a wide range of C4D practitioners – development workers, communicators, academics and officials – as well as those exploring or entering the communication for development sector.
Institutional membership includes development and media organisations, UN agencies, public and private bodies, academic institutions, community organisations and other civil society networks and groups. Institutional members have their own Network profile area; which can be customised to showcase C4D experience and services, as well as linking to associated individual members. Institutions contribute a modest sliding-scale fee to be part of the Network.
Member institutions cover individual Network membership for all associated staff/volunteers/students. (This is unlimited for large-scale institutions / up to 100 members for medium-scale institutions / unlimited for universities – based on faculty nomination and including alumni for up to three years after graduation).
Both individual and institutional members can upgrade to be registered as C4D Service Providers. Service Providers are Network members who offer ‘communication for development’ services; including varied consultancy, training, strategy and interim management, and also support services such as translation, media fixing, research and administration.
