The founding members of APCAM are the other organisations which have signed the Memorandum for the formation of the Asia-Pacific Centre for Arbitration and Mediation (APCAM).
Any APCAM Member may recommend an organisation for admission as a new APCAM Member.The following shall be the eligibility criteria for membership in APCAM:
That there shall be only two members from a country, if they are full-fledged arbitration and mediation centres. But if the member is an exclusive mediation or arbitration centre, there can be a maximum of two such centres from each category from a country. Membership shall be equally from public sector and private sector.
A public sector organization is one which is governed, supported or affiliated with the government or the courts of that country and a private sector organization is one which is non-governmental and governed by its elected members and not one which is a proprietary concern or established or governed under a permanent governing unit.
The admission of any organisation to membership in APCAM will require the approval of three-quarters of all existing APCAM Members at that point in time, if it is an organisation from a new country and in case of an additional member of an existing country, it will require the approval of three-quarters of all existing APCAM Members at that point in time and approval of the existing members of that country.
All Members shall pay a one-time membership fee of USD 1000.00 (One thousand only), or such fee that the General Meeting decides from time to time.
