Future Search The Network
 

Becoming a Member of Future Search Network

There are two requirements in addition to paying the annual dues (currently $125 a year for those who can afford it. All others may set their own fee at whatever level they can afford). One is a Learning Agreement - to gain firsthand experience with the Future Search principles and methodology. The second is a Service Agreement - to do an annual Future Search-related project for your local community or the Future Search Network community.

Learning Agreement

Learn the principles of Future Search and the minimum conditions for success in ONE of three ways:

  1. Attend "Managing a Future Search - A Learning Workshop."

  2. Participate in a local pro-bono internship.

  3. Partner with an experienced Future Search Network member as a sponsor or co-facilitator.


Service Agreement

Serve your community (local or FSN) with a self-managed project such as those below or one you create:

  • Co-facilitate a pro-bono or low-fee Future Search and share what you learn in a brief report.
  • Document or assist with logistics at a Future Search.
  • Organize an orientation meeting for potential clients.
  • Serve as a mentor.
  • Research Future Search outcomes for the Ripple Project.
  • Contribute to the newsletter or website.
  • Add to the conference data base.
  • Join or start a local Network group.
  • Increase the Network's visibility through writing articles or presenting at conferences.


We work on the honor system. Future Search Network will distribute to all members an annual list of conferences run, other support activities, and available documents.

If you are not a professional facilitator, you may still sponsor a conference in your community. We will help you find competent folks who will work with you in return for a chance to practice their skills and to serve the community.

We urge organizations using Future Search methods to contribute to the Future Search Network with an annual gift, or to support our local, pro bono efforts with conference grants, facilitator training, meeting space and logistics help.
