As membership in CHELONIA 2002 is by invitation only, anyone interested in becoming a member should first apply for candidate status to his respective regional CHELONIA 2002 representative listed below. A personal bio must accompany the completely filled-in application form. The regional representative will then probably invite the applicant for a personal interview.
Candidate status will normally be given to persons, who successfully bred a number of freshwater turtle taxa, published articles about it, and have proven to possess a reliable and loyal character.
Candidate status usually will be denied to persons having no experiences with freshwater turtle breeding, whose only interest is making money with turtles or who are involved with certain turtle keepers, who have shown hostility towards CHELONIA 2002 (or its predecessor organizations SFOE and EFTBA) or who do regular business with renowned Czech turtle smugglers.
