Note: The GU Board is in the process of updating its membership agreement to reflect updates to the organization's lobbying and advocacy policy. An announcement will be made to all members when the new agreement is finalized.

Green Umbrella Membership Agreement: 

  • Members affirm their commitment to the mission, vision and goals of Green Umbrella.
  • Members understand that Green Umbrella is an organization based on cooperation and collaboration between its individual and organizational members. We encourage diversity of opinions and recognize that some members may have agendas that differ in part from those of Green Umbrella and other members. We insist, however, on mutual respect. Adversarial approaches or confrontations between members in forums, social media, or any other public areas that concern Green Umbrella are not consistent with membership.
  • Member organizations are encouraged to use the fact of their membership in Green Umbrella for identification and promotional purposes. Members shall not state or imply that such membership constitutes endorsement of any policies or actions without the express approval by the Green Umbrella Board.
  • Members acknowledge that:
      • Views they may express do not necessarily reflect the views of Green Umbrella and its Board.
      • Green Umbrella engages in advocacy activities and occasionally engages in lobbying activities that are aligned with its mission, values and goals.
      • Views expressed by Green Umbrella in its advocacy and lobbying do not reflect the views or participation of the entirety of its membership.
  • Members have the opportunity to submit notices of events, volunteer and job opportunities, grants, news articles, photos, interviews and success stories to GU staff for consideration to include on Green Umbrella communications platforms. Green Umbrella reserves the right to monitor items for appropriateness and to reject items according to its content guidelines.
  • Green Umbrella does not share contact information for individual members and does not sell or exchange mailing lists with other organizations. Unless instructed otherwise, Green Umbrella acknowledges organizational members in its member directory.
  • Green Umbrella affirms its right to reject or expel a member if, in the Board’s determination, their purpose or actions are not consistent with or complementary to the mission and goals of Green Umbrella. In such a case, cause would be stated and membership dues returned.
