Nationally, or sub-regionally based trade associations, organizations and related agencies (Public & Private) in the production, ginning, textile and apparel sectors based in Africa.
Membership is by credible institution, not by individual, with an institutional representative designated to participate and make decisions on its behalf.
Member institutions (associations, related agencies, organizations) must be an credible institution in good standing, legally registered, and truly representative of its sector.
Companies in an appropriate sector, but without national associations, or not members of existing national associations, may join ACTIF directly as corporate members but have no individual voting rights and are not eligible to hold office (but may be co-opted onto committees).
ACTIF is founded, held in trust, and governed by the corporate members and all services are focused on their needs and requirements.
Benefits for Corporate Members:
Internationally & regionally based trade organizations, related agencies and ancillary companies may join ACTIF as Associate Members.

Although services are not focused on Associate Members, nor are they involved in the governance process, Associate Members are strongly encouraged to participate in ACTIF activities, and lend active technical and other support to ACTIF programs and services.
