Members provide constructive and independent views on a pro bono basis, contributing to the NCFA peer review process.

Potential members are nominated by the NCFA Secretariat, supporters or signatories, and can be voted into the Network by the Steering Committee.
Professionals can volunteer themselves for nomination by contacting the Secretariat, and they will be asked to identify the relevant skills and expertise that they would like to contribute.
The Network may consist of up to 15 members, who are in place for an initial two-year period.
