Why is #MEAction International launching a membership program?

Since we launched in 2015, we have always been a community-based organization, built by and for patients and caregivers. Our membership program aims to make it clearer and easier than ever before to learn about, contribute to, and support #MEAction’s work.

What are the benefits of membership?

All members are invited to participate in quarterly members’-only calls where we’ll celebrate our wins, share our challenges and hurdles, and strategize our plans for the future. Members are also invited to participate in members’ votes around major questions related to our outreach and advocacy work.

Paid memberships offer additional benefits including:

  • A membership card
  • Welcome packet 
  • Special members’-only events and materials
  • Store discount (for #MillionsMissing and other merch)

Over time, we hope to keep expanding the benefits of membership.

How will funds raised through membership be used?

Funds will be used to support the work we already do in outreach, advocacy and medical education. However, if we can reach our goal of 3000 members, it will enable us to support the work of even more organizers, invest in new resources for members like training modules, and build an even stronger, more supported community.

What if I cannot afford to be a paid member, can I still participate? 

Yes! We welcome the participation of anyone who wants to contribute to our community, regardless of income, and hope to make participation as accessible as possible, whatever your level of capacity. Free members are invited to participate in our quarterly calls, members-only votes, and in all of our public-facing initiatives and actions.
