We have three types of memberships:

  • Full membership: opened to all persons that meet the eligibility criteria above
  • Associate Membership: non-profit institutions active in development, which do not meet the Full membership eligibility criteria as laid down above
  • Honorary Membership: an individual who has made unique, seminal contribution to the field of social work is eligible for election to Honorary Membership.

The number of Honorary Members cannot exceed one (1) in a calendar year.Under extraordinary circumstances, the Board of Directors may exceed the normal yearly limitation.

A member shall cease to be a member if:

a) He/She gives one month notice in writing to the Governing Board of Directors about their intention to resign from membership. Upon the expiry of such notice he/she shall cease to be a member.

b) If He/She is removed from membership by the vote of not less than two-thirds of the members of the Organisation at an Open Meeting. This will mostly be the case if Holland House Hargeisa code of conduct has been in breach or if the reputation of the organisation has been implicated in any way.
