Even if you’re not a “joiner”, we urge Technology for Living clients to become members. Here’s why. Technology For Living was developed as a consumer-driven organization because consumers told us they wanted PROP and TIL to be person-centered in all of our supports and services. We need PROP and TIL clients to be members, so we don’t lose that vision. When we apply for grants to finance the programs and services that support you, potential funders look at the number of members as one important piece of evidence that Technology for Living is a member-driven, democratic organization.
As a non-profit charitable society, Technology for Living is governed by its members. If you are not a member, you cannot participate at Annual General Meetings, be nominated for the Board of Directors or elect the members of the Board. This is equivalent to not voting in a general election! You do not need to be a PROP or TIL member to be our client. However, your membership is very important, so please become a member today.
