Membership

Membership of Viatores Christi

Membership of Viatores Christi Association

VC is a membership organisation and seeks to act in the best interests of its members through various types of support at home and in the field.  VC offers a welcoming community of likeminded individuals. All volunteers are encouraged to become members either full or associate should they wish to remain in contact with the association after training or overseas placements.

Who can become a member of VC?

Those who take up an overseas assignment

All who satisfactorily complete our Venture – Training for Development course may apply for membership of the association, but membership, while encouraged, is not obligatory

Process

If a person wishes to take up an assignment abroad as a member of VC, they may be recommended to the Council which can ratify them as a member.

If a person completes the Venture course, but decides ultimately not to work overseas, they may still become a member; in that case VC encourages them to become active in the association and engage with mission needs in Ireland.  A person may, for example, join a committee of the Council or volunteer to assist with the monthly workshops or other activities, and then apply for membership after a period of six months.

Membership fee

The annual membership subscription is €25, but this is not payable by members serving abroad or in the first year after their return.

Rights as a Member of VC

A member may attend and vote at the annual general meeting, may be elected to the Council and can take an active part in the association.
