ASSEMBLY MEMBERS COMMUNITY

MEMBERSHIP REOPENS FOR NEW MEMBERS IN DECEMBER 2019!

The Assembly Community has been a game changer for me. The women are real, vulnerable, supportive and challenging. I love being part of something that both accepts and stretches me. No one has to pretend in the Community and no one has to settle.
— SIOBHAN MCCARTNEY, WRITER AND MAKER
Assembly has helped me to connect, in a meaningful way, with a fantastic and diverse group of wonderful, inspiring women. There are no airs and graces, just genuine people that raise you up. Through this community, and the support of fellow members, I’m finding the courage to push myself and explore ideas and projects I have longed to bring to life for a long time.
— SINEAD DOYLE, PR MANAGER AND WRITER

The Assembly Members Community is for women anywhere who want to be part of a safe, supportive, empowering community.

We are committed to being a soulful connection point for ethical, values-led women who desire to learn, gather, reflect and grow.

The core of Assembly is COURAGE, learning how to be brave with our lives. 

Courage to find out what makes us come alive.

Courage to go after the things that we want.

Courage to take steps towards the desires we have for ourselves and our communities.

Courage to try new things, to make mistakes, to learn and grow.

ARE YOU IN?

For me, Assembly is an unbelievable community of women and an amazing resource. Being part of it has given me so much, it has given me things I didn’t know I even needed! The personal and professional growth have been significant - people have asked me what the change has been and I can say without a doubt, the game change was Assembly. What Mel has created and offers is just not available anywhere else in Northern Ireland and it is a joy to be part of!
— NICOLA MCCALLUM, RECRUITMENT EXECUTIVE & WRITER
I signed up because I knew that being part of a creative community would help me feel more confident in sharing what I do. To be honest, as soon as I saw it I didn’t really think too much - I just knew I wanted in! I’m much more confident in myself. I’ve always had lots of ideas, and now they are becoming realities but I’m not afraid to own them. I’m more confident that they have a place.
— Sarah, Yoga Instructor & Artist

MEMBERS ARE SAYING…

I struggle with motivation at the best of times but when I surround myself with like-minded people I somehow feel charged and ready to take action on the ideas that have been lying dormant for months. Joining the Members Community has given me a sense of accountability that prevents me from hiding behind my 9-5 job and stepping in to the creative life I have wanted to lead for so long. I no longer stress about social media and what’s expected of me and instead put my energy in to content that I will be proud of down the line. I feel more in control of my own path which is pretty liberating! Award yourself with the opportunity to wrangle all those little dreams and hopes and make them happen. Be prepared to be inspired, to learn and to grow in to a version of yourself that you’ve been waiting for!
— Alex, Writer & Photographer
Being part of the Members Community has pushed me to step out and talk to new people and to talk more about my interests and opinions. It is a great support network. It’s great to feel like you are a part of something so special and it’s worth stepping out of a place that is comfortable into a new space with supportive women.

FAQ’S:

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO SIGN UP FOR?

  • Signing up to become an Assembly Member is a minimum three-month commitment. Members get automatic access to all previous content, videos and online workshops in our Members Library so we ask for a minimum commitment of three months so that you can experience the full benefits of your membership. Thanks for understanding!

DO I HAVE TO HAVE FACEBOOK TO JOIN?

  • Our online community operates mostly through our closed, private facebook page. This is a vital part of building a safe supportive community and will enable you to get the most out of your Members experience. If you do not use facebook, you are welcome to create an account just for Membership activity or simply just receive the monthly email content.

I’M NOT A ‘CREATIVE’, BUT I THINK I WOULD REALLY BENEFIT FROM THIS COMMUNITY - CAN I STILL JOIN?

  • Of COURSE! You do not have to be a creative business owner or an entrepreneur to join. Our 100+ strong community is made up of women from all kinds of paths: Teachers, Designers, Mothers, Social Workers, Artists, Photographers, Activists, Beauticians etc. Our main criteria is a desire to learn, gather, reflect and grow.

I DON’T LIVE IN NORTHERN IRELAND, CAN I STILL JOIN?

  • All of our monthly members content is done online, so you can be anywhere in the world to join us although most of our members are in Ireland and the UK. Assembly events are all held in Northern Ireland (for now) so there might be times where members meet up locally which can induce some FOMO - BUT - the support and learning within the online community is SO worth it!

HERE’S WHAT MEMBERS ARE SAYING…

I wanted to be part of a supportive network of women for inspiration and advice. Since I joined the Assembly Members Community I feel more confident to go forward with my ideas. It’s a wonderful, non-judgemental supportive community.
— Vicki, Photographer & Blogger
Joining Assembly Members was an investment in myself - giving myself a chance and not spending more years wondering ‘what if?’ It has been really welcoming, supportive and encouraging and since joining I have done more actual writing, set up a blog and instagram for my writing and most importantly I feel more connected to myself creatively. It’s been a GREAT investment.
— Helena, Writer
Since joining the members community I think I’ve seen that there are more people who are ‘like me’ than I realised! I just hadn’t been coming into contact with them before! If you want to feel inspired and commit time to focus on your creative side then do it straight away!
— Nicola, Designer

ASSEMBLY MEMBERS CHARITY PROJECT 2018/19

This year we partnered with Christian Aid Ireland to support their ‘Breaking the Barriers’ campaign to increase rural women’s jobs and income in the sustainable energy sector across Africa and Latin America. The support raised by the campaign will be used to improve working and living conditions, promote gender equality, and strengthen women’s social status in these developing areas .

Through fundraising efforts including a Clothes Swap and a skydive event, Assembly Members have raised over £2500 for the campaign. Match funding from the European Union means that our total raised will be multiplied by five, bringing our grand total of support raised to £12,500!

We are so proud of this aspect of Assembly and to be able to stand with other women around the world and support them into sustainable, empowering, life-giving employment!
