We are a free membership organisation, accountable to the community members that support us.
Joining The Langholm Initiative is free. We only ask that you are 16 or older and have either a DG13, DG14 or TD9 postcode within the land area of the Tarras Valley Nature Reserve.
The members of our organisation are the ones that elect Board members at the AGM and are who we as an organisation are accountable to. If you want to join as an associate member (i.e., you support our work but you live outside the operating area) or a junior member (aged 12 - 15) you can still fill out the form below. Although this means that you can't vote at AGMs, it still demonstrates that you support our work.
Having the support of local people is absolutely crucial to what we do. We are what is known as a community development trust, meaning that we believe in community-led regeneration. Joining us as a member allows us to say to funders, partners and government agencies that we have the approval of our local people. It also allows you to have a say in what we do and how we do it. Our members are very important to us, and we'd love to see you join us.
We try our hardest to be an eco-friendly organisation and so we'd love you to fill out the electronic form on this page. However, if you need to, there is a downloadable copy here. It's optimised for Microsoft Word, so you can email it to us rather than print it too!
