Membership of AIGA (with the exception of Associate Memberships) entitles you to a vote on any issue at our annual general meeting and enables you to have input into the activities of the association. AIGA is a not for profit organisation and all membership fees will be used to continue the work of the association. Our objectives include ‘to promote the human rights of children including their protection from medically unnecessary genital surgery and irreversible hormonal therapy’, to ‘provide parents, prospective parents, educators, health care providers and the community in general with accurate information about the risks of unnecessary child genital surgery’ and to ‘inform politicians, Governments, child protection NGOs and other stakeholders about the Right of Genital Autonomy’.
You will need a ‘proposer’ and a ‘seconder’ for your membership application. The current members of the AIGA Board of Directors are listed below and they will be happy to support your membership application upon request.
Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any enquiries regarding membership packages or AIGA in general.
We look forward to having you as part of the AIGA team.
