Categories of CID members
Dual membership, that is Individual plus Institutional, is the rule. In detail, categories of CID Members are:
1. Individual Member
Individual membership is for physical persons. An individual person can become CID Member in two ways:
a) After nomination by a CID Member; in which case there is no evaluation of his/her profile (curriculum vitae, bio).
b) Without nomination, after evaluation of his/her profile.
2. Institutional Member
Institutional membership is for moral persons (juridical entities) that is dance schools, companies, amateur groups, federations, associations, foundations, business companies etc.
An institution can become an Institutional Member of CID when its chief executive officer (president, artistic director, owner) and/or other leading persons of the institution (teachers of a school, choreographers of a company, associates, members of the board of a federation etc.) have joined CID as individual members.
Institutional membership does not imply that other persons of the institution are automatically CID Members – they can join CID as individuals without evaluation of their profile.
3. Youth Member
Dancers under 18 years of age become Youth Members of the CID nominated by their teacher to receive International Certification.
4. Associate Member
Associate Members are individuals or institutions who are prominent members of CID and contribute financially to its aims. As benefactory members they pay an increased annual fee which is used to cover membership fees for members from very poor countries.
5. Honorary Member
Honorary Members are persons who have rendered very important services to CID. They take part in General Assemblies, without voting rights.
CID Sections are institutional members of the CID. Their main function is to relay information from the CID Secretariat, to increase the number of CID Members in their area and to maintain contacts with government and municipal agencies.
Events cannot be Members of CID, while events organizers can.
To attend a CID Congress or other CID event one has to be an individual member.
To attend the CID General Assembly one can be: either an individual member, or an individual member representing an institutional member (in which case he/she has two votes).
