Our Membership Prospectus summarises what VOLA is about, our Mission, Vision and values, benefits of membership, eligibility criteria and what happens with your application.  You can apply for full (voting) or associate (non-voting) membership.

The Associate membership application process is short and straight forward.  The full membership application requires more information, as part of the process is to undertake initial due diligence checks to ensure that essential criteria regarding quality of delivery, financial standing, track record, etc. are in place in applicant organisations, as a precursor to full members being considered for future delivery on consortium projects.  Note, further project-specific due diligence checks are required, post-membership approval, prior to any member being approved as a consortium delivery partner. Membership Questionnaire form.
