GROUP AFFILIATION AND MEMBER COUNTRIES
All group affiliations will be evaluated and approved by the World Chief Instructor. On approval and payment of requisite fees, a Certificate of Affiliation will be issued together with a Book of Rules setting out the terms and conditions of affiliation. Within 12 months of a one-year probationary affiliation, the affiliated group must invite the World Chief Instructor to an official seminar organized by the affiliated group for the purpose of validation and introduction of DSKI training curriculum.
AFFILIATION VS CONCURRENT REPRESENTATION OF MULTIPLE ORGANIZATIONS
On joining DSKI national and state associations and organizations become affiliates of DSKI and fully recognized as country affiliates. They are not permitted to represent DSKI and one or more other organizations at the same time. Affiliates unable to relinquish their representation of the other organization will not be permitted to maintain concurrent representation as this will create a conflict of interest. Conflict of interest arises from dual or multiple representation. Affiliates are expected to adopt and implement DSKI's rules and regulations and training curriculum, and embrace DSKI values and philosophy.
