Thanks for your Membership application
From all of us at Project SafeCom, a warm thank-you for completing your Application for Membership of Project SafeCom. You have just become a participant in the future of the Project. It is through the building of our community that we at Project SafeCom survive.
One of the aspects of the Constitution safeguards Project SafeCom from "membership stacking". Membership stacking is something akin to "branch-stacking" in political parties. The Constitution prevents you from being a full and eligible membership until the Steering Committee, at its next meeting, has taken note of your membership application, and considers that you are a membership applicant "in good faith". You will then gain all rights as a member, also the right to vote at meetings. Generally, this also means that there's a cooling-off period before new members are fully accepted as members.
Some other pages in this section:
6 September 2005: The Tipping Model for business - Robert Woodhead proposes a tried-and-tested method for providing compensation - the offering and acceptance of tips - and provides an example of a successful internet business using this model.
20 January 2002: Project SafeCom Membership information, what is a Membership? - Every officially Incorporated Association has a body of members. The members help decide on issues in the running and management, and they support the Association. This is one of our older pages, updated in 2006.
7 December 2001: Kidz Privacy: Are you younger than 18 years of age? - a page about the US COPPA legislation. Although this is a relatively short page, hardly ever seen, it's linked off the membership application page, and it's about children's privacy and how Project SafeCom deals with it.
7 December 2001: Information sheet and guidelines for incorporation - The "official" part of forming a Corporation is about complying with the legislation and getting to know the legislation. Luckily the Department of Fair Trading has a lot of online resources, and we happily confess....

The membership mail-out
As soon as we have completed our administrative process, you will receive your Membership ID Card with your details imprinted and your unique membership number. This is the card that identifies you as a registered member of our organisation. (Note: our earlier intent to enable your name and membership ID to function as a log-in to the members section of the website was not implemented)
You will also receive small (80mm) CD-ROM that opens on your PC with some Project SafeCom documents. Updated information about your privileges as a member will be sent to you as and when applicable.
From time to time the contents of our membership benefits package may change. Also, we need you to know, that the postal package, for financial reasons, is a once-off only "snail mail" mailout, unless you request "snail mail only" mailings.
At Project SafeCom Inc. we prefer electronic communication with you. Please inform us as soon as possible if your email address changes!
So, keep an eye on the mailman at your house: he will be delivering "goodies" soon from us!
Thanks for your Support!
