ACNSL General Membership
As provided in the Bylaws, the general membership of ACNSL will consist of retired career government officials who served in senior national security positions within the U.S. Government, such as retired Ambassadors, Generals, Admirals, and Senior Executives. Candidates for membership will be recruited, vetted, and selected by the Board of Directors, assisted by a Membership Committee. In addition to the above, criteria will include acumen, insight, nonpartisanship, and a willingness to dedicate sufficient time and effort to the work of ACNSL. Just as today’s national security decisions require consultation across the United States government, so too will our work reflect the insights from a broad and diverse range of former interagency leaders. Any member of the ACNSL Board of Directors or a general member may nominate another individual for membership in the ACNSL.
Types of Membership
• Acknowledged members are those willing to openly serve as members of the ACNSL.
• Unacknowledged members are those who wish to support the mission of the ACNSL anonymously.
• There are other non-voting membership levels. They are Colleague, Associate, and Honorary.
Annual dues are payable on the First of January each year and cover membership through the 31st of December of that year. ACNSL is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
