PROUD is an association, and organisation with members. Only (former) sex workers can become a member. Members decide what the goals and values are of PROUD, through the General Members Meetings (ALV) and through other meetings and online consultation.
PROUD’s board makes a strategy based on what members want. The board represents the association, does the financial administration and makes the day-to-day decisions. The board is held accountable by members at the General Members Meeting, discusses plans and decisions with active members and asks for advice of members online.
The board assigns projects to volunteers and consultants. They execute PROUD’s plans. When a consultant is hired, PROUDmembers are preferred candidates.
PROUD is in contact with many sex workers and their organisation within the Netherlands and abroad. PROUD is a member of the International Committee on the Rights of Sex Workers in Europe (ICRSE) and the Global Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP).
