(Membership at POhWER – a short explanation)

At our AGM in November 2016 our Chair and Chief Executive talked about reconnecting with members and moving forward. From 13th January – 10th February 2017 we will be contacting all our current members to find out what they think about being a member and asking them how they can help be involved and shape our future.

This page contains all the information on what it means to be a member and how you can also be a supporter. There is also a feedback questionnaire to fill in if you are one of our current members.

The Membership Consultation is aimed at our current members, but if you would like to give feedback or suggestions about membership please feel free to fill in the questionnaire.

Thank you.

Membership Consultation – for current members

At our AGM in November we talked about how we wanted to reconnect and engage with our members.

First Steps – Understanding What Being a Member means

It is important to understand what it means to be a member.

On this page is a form which explains the main points about being a member. Please read this form for more information.

On this page is also a form about being a supporter.  


It is important to understand that you are already supporting POhWER by being a member.

The rules of POhWER (the articles of assocation) say that Members have extra responsibilities.


Second Steps – Filling in the Feedback Questionnaire

The second steps for us are to make sure you are happy as a member and find out if there is anything we can improve or do differently.

We want to know what you think. On this page there is a feedback survey.


If you prefer you can call us to give your feedback.

Your feedback will help us make sure we can improve things for our members in the future.


Third Steps – What to do next

Look at the forms and fill in the feedback questionnaire. Then have a think about how you would like to be involved in POhWER in the future.

In the questionnaire you can let us know if you no longer wish to be a full member but instead would like to be just a supporter.

If you don’t want to be a full member, that’s okay. By being a supporter you can still help us however you are able to.


The deadline for receiving replies is Friday 10th February 2017.

If we don’t hear from you by this date we will be stopping your membership and won’t send you anything else.

Don’t worry though, if you change your mind in the future you can always come back.
