How to Become a Member Institution

Spokane Alliance strength is in its members: the congregations, unions, nonprofits, associations and civic organizations that share a concern for community.  Spokane Alliance is broad based and seeks to "stand for the whole".

As Alliance members, institutions commit to building teams of leaders and potential leaders to work on local issues that are agreed on by the entire Alliance.  By joining with other institutions that have similar goals and concerns, Alliance members increase their collective power and work to achieve victories on local, city and state-wide issues.

Member institutions pay annual dues to ensure Spokane Alliance has a secure and independent core budget and to support the work of the organization.  This enables the Alliance to be accountable to its member organizations.

By being a member organization we:

  • Build relationships
  • Identify common, core issues impacting people's lives and communities
  • Develop a strategy to act on concerns
  • Take action
  • Evaluate and learn from our work
  • Create space for everyday citizens to engage in shaping their community
  • Identify and develop leaders inside every member organization

 

The Spokane Alliance will work with you to build a “core team” at your organization.  A core team is a group of leaders within a member institution who act as a liason with the Alliance, listen for issues and find new leaders among their institution's membership.  Ultimately, a core team helps to shift the culture of their institution into one that is relational and responsive to the needs of their members.
