Local Networks

In European countries or regions statistical practitioners may consider joining ENBIS collectively as a local network. Reasons could be to reinforce, to broaden, and/or to internationalize the activities. The advantages for both ENBIS and the local network include the options of alignment of activities, providing more value to the members and at the same time strengthen the capability of organising meetings and events of larger added value.

  • Local networks should consist of at least 20 members.
  • Local networks may join ENBIS as part of their membership. As ENBIS is web-based, joining involves making the e-mail addresses of the local network members known to ENBIS.
  • Local networks will support ENBIS financially on an activity-to-activity basis, in return for reductions or (exclusive) benefits for its members.
  • Activities of the local network may be made part of ENBIS and vice-versa.
  • Membership administration of the local network will not be the responsibility of ENBIS.
  • The executive tasks of the board of the local network will be partially integrated with those of ENBIS. The president of the local network becomes automatically a member of the Council of ENBIS. Hence a local network has the same status within ENBIS as a working group.
  • From the perspective of an organisation in development, such as a local network, the above arrangements are made for a period of 5 years. They may be evaluated annually, leading to possible changes in the content of activities. Evaluation after 5 years may also affect the organisational form.
