Explanatory Notes:

  1. Membership of EDbU is open to deafblind organisations and deafblind individuals only. A deafblind organisation is an organisation that has a governing body (e.g. an Executive Committee) which has a majority of deafblind people, and is elected by the deafblind membership at regular intervals.
  2. Each country can only have one National Member. If two or more deafblind organizations operate in a country they must agree among themselves on which one of them shall be the National Member. The others can be Associate Members.
  3. A deafblind individual may only apply for Associate Membership.
