Before attaining full membership as a national committee within World OMEP, a committee is given the status of “preparatory committee” for two years. Below is a detailed explanation for the preparation process to become an OMEP official member.
3. A Government, Ministry of Education, Health or Social Development can appoint a group to set up an OMEP Preparatory Committee.
Once the previous steps have been fulfilled, the next one is to request recognition from OMEP World Assembly. The documentation below has to be sent to the Regional Vice Presidency, who will forward it to the World Presidency:
After the Word Executive Committee consideration to determine that all the documents have been received, the application should be requested before the next World Assembly annual meeting, in which the recognition can be granted together with the rights it is entitled to as a Preparatory Committee.
Any preparatory committee interested in gaining a National Committee full member status, will pay an annual due, prepare an annual report on the activities conducted by the Preparatory Committee and shall submit a list of its members and representatives. The World Assembly can grant all the rights as National Committee, including the right to vote at the next meeting.
An Individual Member is an individual who accepts OMEP’s aims and objectives, and who is recognized by the World Assembly as such, in countries where there is neither a National Committee nor a Preparatory Committee. Individual Members may assume responsibility for creating a Preparatory Committee in their countries.
Individual Membership is authorized by the World Executive and approved by the World Assembly upon recommendation from the Region.
Individual Members attend OMEP World Assembly meetings as observers and do not have any voting rights.
Annual fee for individual member U$S50,00 (fifty US dollars)
