At Accountable Now we believe it is time to fundamentally change approaches to accountability in the civil society sector. Accountability needs to be based on a truly global understanding and it needs to move from a passive reporting exercise to a tool that promotes active stakeholder engagement. 

This can only happen with a strong network of partners. We team up with experts from within and outside the sector and thought-leaders from across the world. We encourage all networks, organisations or individuals interested in partnering with us to advance to agenda of Dynamic Accountability to get in touch.

Which Membership Tier is Right for Us?

Tier 1 Members

Tier 1 members are committed to accountability excellence and learning, including through regular review and reflection and articulation of standards and best practices for the sector. 

Through reporting and action planning, Tier 1 members publicly share their practices, receive feedback from the Independent Review Panel, and continuously refine and expand their accountability mandates and practices. Tier 1 members play a unique role as strategic contributors to accountability in the sector overall.  They can become member representatives on AN’s Board and provide strategic leadership to Accountable Now. Tier 1 members benefit from all of Accountable Now’s offers, including unlimited Help Desk support and receiving 3-5 hours of tailor-made training and support from our in-house experts. 

Tier 2: Associate Members benefit from a wide range of support from Accountable now, including an organization health check upon joining, access to our help desk for up to 3 times per year, and up to 2 hours of tailor-made training or support per year from our in-house team of experts. Annual Action Planning enables Tier 2 members to look beyond the horizon in terms of their accountability practices and articulate how organizations plan to operationalize dynamic accountability across their work. Tier 2 members also benefit from steep discounts for other AN offers and support.

Tier 3: Friends of Accountable Now enjoy access to the community, networking, collaboration and peer-to-peer learning opportunities, alongside discounts for all of our other offers and support. Not only so, Tier 3 Members can use our resource library for self-guided learning, with a range of templates, guidance materials and good practice being made available.
