2019-2020 Membership Revisions

The Forum Board and leadership have convened a task force to streamline the structure and categories for Forum membership. The membership structure has not been amended since 2011 and The Forum’s continued growth and evolution present the opportunity to readdress the definitions and categories to better serve our members.

The task force is working under the following guiding principles:

  • To provide clear, simple, and fair categories that reflect the institutional diversity of our membership;
  • To better allow for participation of institutions and organizations based outside of the U.S.;
  • To expand opportunities for membership by individuals and organizations affiliated with the field;
  • To engage institutions that are currently underrepresented in the membership.

Revisions to the membership structure will be rolled out in phases over the next two years, with the first set of approved changes going into effect for the 2019-2020 membership year. Subsequently, the membership structure and fees will be reviewed on a two-year cycle to ensure that The Forum continues to engage and meet the needs of its diverse membership.

Members are invited to review the task force’s first set of proposed revisions and submit their feedback. Comments and suggestions must be submitted by April 26.
