Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Doe Network! Please be advised that our membership policy has changed. As of November 2017, we are no longer accepting general members. We now require all interested in joining our organization to volunteer for a specific position in order to facilitate working toward our goal of naming the unidentified and finding the missing.

Training is available for all Area Director positions and Web Team positions. We are in the process of creating training for Researcher and Media positions. Once affiliated, members may volunteer to sit on the Potential Match Panel.

Please contact our Membership Coordinator at membership(at)doenetwork.org if you have any questions.

Positions Available

Area Directors - Requires a weekly time commitment to submit possible matches passed by the panel to law enforcement agencies and/or medical examiners.

Researchers - Using research skills to acquire information about cases that we may not have with emphasis on cold cases that may not be presented on well-known websites.

Media Representatives - Point of contact for media to contact you as a Doe Network representative or to make media outlets aware of cases and events.

Website Team Member - Requires a weekly time commitment. Basic HTML knowledge required. Team members work on either the MP Team or UID Team and add, update, close, and quality control cases.

Potential Match Panel Member - Open only to established members and currently has a waiting list.
