The Indiana Breastfeeding Coalition reserves the right to review all membership applications and to revoke membership from any individual or organization at any time. All Organizational Memberships will be reviewed by the IBC leadership team to evaluate the organizational alignment of each organization seeking membership. The IBC leadership team will determine if the Mission, Vision, and Actions of each organization qualify them for membership. In some cases, the IBC leadership team will examine an organization's close ties to other organizations or conglomerates to determine if membership is appropriate. The IBC may consider the following criteria as well as Mission, Vision, and Actions when making a determination: the core practices of the organization and its close partners, the history of the organization and its close partners, the marketing practices of the organization and its close partners, the organization and its close partner’s public policy agenda, if that organization's membership would support or detract from IBC’s actions or image, if membership would make it appear that IBC endorses a product or brand, and other criteria deemed appropriate by the IBC leadership team. If an organization is denied membership the IBC leadership team will inform the organization in writing as to the reason membership was denied.
Membership is free and open to any individual or organization whose mission is consistent with the Indiana Breastfeeding Coalition's (IBC) priorities and meets the requirements for membership.
