Who is the member? (click here to see the answer)
For nonprofit and corporate members, your organization is the member, but all your staff (and in nonprofits volunteers and board members) receive benefits. This means everyone from your organization is eligible to receive the member rate on trainings and events, download the FREE Standards for Excellence Education Packets, and receive discounts on publications and other resources.
For Student and Individual Members, only you receive benefits.
I am currently forming a nonprofit. Can I join? (click here to see the answer)
Yes, you can join as a nonprofit member while you are in the formation process. Note: PANO does not help with the filing paperwork but can provide help with day-to-day nonprofit questions, access to many free Standards for Excellence Resources, sample polices, procedures and templates, discounted trainings, and more.
What is PANO's Dissolution Policy? (click here to see the answer)
PANO has a nondiscrimination grievance policy concerning membership and program attendance; however PANO does have a means of removing disruptive groups from this participation. For example, if a group regularly commandeers training programs to discuss an unrelated issue instead of the focus of the program, then the PANO board can prohibit future participation and/or discontinue the membership.
