End of both types of membership:

-Membership ends when the member organization does no longer want to be a member of the network. Such intent needs to be sent to the secretariat by e-mail. There is no reimbursement of already paid membership fees.
-Membership ends when member is expelled from the network by decision of the board. This only happens when members do not meet any of their obligations for an extended period of time or when the member acts counter to the mission and vision of the INACH Network or Internationally accepted Human Rights standards and/or anti-discrimination legislation. There is no reimbursement of already paid membership fees.
