Must I become a G-I-N member to participate in G-I-N Africa activities?
You can subscribe to the G-I-N mailing list as a non-member to get acquainted with our activities, which we hope will convince you to become an active G-I-N member. G-I-N membership confers significant benefits that include access to resources, working groups, development tools, a newsletter, the guideline library, and discounted registration fees for G-I-N conferences. Full members can interact and network with the international G-I-N community to exchange ideas, receive advice, and avoid duplicating efforts.
The Steering Group meets via teleconference as required, with ongoing e-mail contact for issues arising in the interim. An in-person Steering Group meeting occurs at the annual G-I-N Conference.
