In joining the Minnesota Women’s Consortium, the undersigned recognizes that the common purpose of the Minnesota Women’s Consortium is to achieve full equality for women. The Consortium is an association of organizations and individuals committed to feminist goals not in conflict with those set out in the Houston Plan of Action, U.N. Decade of Women 1977.
While no organization is likely to take a stand on all of these issues, the undersigned hereby agrees they will not actively work in opposition to any of these planks.
Once an organizational membership application has been received, it must be reviewed by the Board of Directors and then ratified by the voting delegates of the Minnesota Women’s Consortium. After ratification, an organization will become an official member of the Consortium upon payment of dues and election/appointment of one Delegate and one Alternate. The Delegate or Alternate will be the organization’s official representative and voting member of the Consortium.
