FAQ

Question: Can I start my own Greeter organization?
Answer: Yes you can!

The  worldwide organisation of Greeter destinations is very happy to accept new members. In fact we have great expectations about the number of destinations around the world. At the beginning of 2016 we are/were just over 100 members and we expect to be around 200 by the end of 2016! If you are interested in starting your own local Greeter organisation, feel free to fill out the information form and we will get back to you with information that will get you started real easy!

 

Question: Can a governmental organization become a member?
Answer: Yes, absolutely!

Many of our local Greeter organisations are supported by local governmental organisations. Often the local tourist board takes initiative and creates the infrastructure for the Greeters.
We do ask governmental organisations to follow the same requirements to become a member as we ask individuals. You can find our sign up form here.

 

Question: How can I find a Greeter organisation?
Answer: We made it easy on you.

You can use the top menu (Find a destination) or simply
Search by map
Search by country

 

Question: Is there a membership fee to the Global Greeter Network?
Answer: No there is not.

At this moment all activities are ‘ in-kind’. This means volunteers support the concept in various ways. There is a real possibility that at some point in time the Global Greeter Network will need a back office. However the goal would be to find financial support from third parties such as corporate partners and sponsors.
