Types of Membership

Three levels of membership are available: Principal, Auditing and/or Academic membership. These separate levels of membership provide members a choice of the level of involvement and contributions that they are capable of investing in the OIF. Membership fees are quarterly pro-rated, with the exception of Academic membership and members that are re-joining.  OIF membership year runs from June 1 – May 31, and are pro-rated accordingly.  If joining in the last quarter of the membership year (March-May), Company will be invoiced for the current quarter along with the entire amount for the upcoming membership year.
