Local chapters of Humanity+ are autonomous, and members of H+ chapters do not have to join Humanity+. However, local chapters seeking Full Recognition as chapters of Humanity+ must have at least three Basic Members, and one Full Member.
Members of Humanity+ are not automatically members of any local chapters of Humanity+ however; local chapters may have additional membership dues and requirements.
To be recognized as a Humanity+ chapter, groups must appoint a leader or liaison to Humanity+, and submit a Chapter Registration Application to Humanity+ defining the chapter and the geographic area to be served (if any; chapters may also serve occupational or interest groups). A Liaison (Full Member) should subscribe to the general discussion list and any local Humanity+ list for their area.
