The ICPC is at the centre of a unique and dynamic network comprised of policy makers, researchers, practitioners, and non-governmental organisations from around the world focused on issues relating to crime prevention and community safety.
ICPC membership means taking part in this community and benefitting from privileged collaboration with the Centre as well as access to information and its network.
How does one become a member?
ICPC membership is based on sharing common values in crime prevention and urban safety, as defined in the ICPC statutes.
According to the ICPC statutes, qualifying general members able to designate a representative are:
- Cities, associations of cities and other regional administrations;
- National or international non-governmental organizations;
- Specialized institutes and research centres; universities; governmental and inter-governmental organizations;
- Private sector businesses and organisations.
Members’ representatives are chosen from those persons holding an elected position in the organisation they represent, or from permanent employees or persons who hold a directorial position in the organisation they represent. Honorary members can also be chosen by the Board of Directors and, as such, can attend the Annual General Meeting in a non-voting capacity.
In order to become a general member, the applicant must forward a written application to the attention of the President of the Board of Directors. The application will be subsequently submitted to a vote of the Board of Directors. Membership is automatically renewed on a yearly basis, unless the member no longer meets the required qualifications, submits a resignation, or shows cause for dismissal.
Applications should be sent to the ICPC, care of Ms. Kassa Bourne, Director of Administration, at 3535 avenue du Parc, 4th floor, Montreal, H2X 2H8 (Quebec) Canada or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
