WHAT TO EXPECT AS A MEMBER

EURAD is first and foremost a network of its’ member organisations.

EURAD is one of the only, if not the only, EU focused drug policy foundation advocating in the fields of both drug prevention and recovery oriented treatment. If you subscribe to our general approach, then you may want to consider becoming a member or sponsor of EURAD.

Member Opportunities: EURAD promotes a recovery and prevention oriented drug policy at international level such as at EU and UN level and will consult you on relevant opportunities where your organisation can become more actively involved. Examples include: responding to national, EU and International Consultations; involvement in EU Projects; representing your organisation to EU institutions and taking part in EURAD Working Groups. On a political level, you may be interested in representing the wider members of EURAD in EU forums or at the United Nations.

Our Communication with you: Although a large network, EURAD has a small core team who are responsible for the day to day operational management of the network. Therefore, our main methods of communication will be via e-newsletters, facebook and twitter. Members will also be able to access our intranet, which facilitates communication between our various members.

Members are encouraged to contribute to the EURAD website and social media sites.

Face to Face: The EURAD Board meets regularly face to face and wider members can meet formally once per year at the Annual General Meeting. There are also other informal opportunities to meet during the year; such as during EURAD events, at the UN’s Commission of Narcotic Drugs in Vienna each March or during country-specific events. The EURAD board can be co-opted to talk at national events, following a request from a member organisation.
