Membership and Candidates for Membership
Section 8A Candidate for membership is a company not eligible for Regular Membership because it is not in full compliance with the Responsible Distribution program at the time the company's application for membership is approved.
A Candidate is not a member under Section 2 of this Article, but shall advance to Regular Membership status and must submit proof of third-party verification within two years of the approval date of the Candidate’s application for NACD membership. (NOTE: The two-year term was approved by the NACD Board of Directors on November 30, 2009.)
Failure to advance to Regular Membership, or to submit proof of third-party verification within the time required, shall result in automatic termination of Candidate status. Any company terminated from Candidate status shall not again be eligible for Candidate status.
A Candidate shall pay such dues and fees assessed; shall not have the right to vote; shall not use the NACD or Responsible Distribution Verified logo; shall meet such other terms and conditions; including the Responsible Distribution program milestones; and other conditions of Candidate status as may be imposed by NACD from time to time.
