Proration Policy for New Members
The Forum membership year runs from July 1 to June 30. Upon joining, all new members* pay the amount of one full year of membership dues.
Institutional members who join after October 1 will receive a credit**—prorated for each quarter that the member did not belong—applied to the following year’s dues. Credits will be applied as follows:
- October 1 – December 31: 25% credit
- January 1 – March 30: 50% credit
- New institutional members who join after April 1 (in the last fiscal quarter) will be provided a complimentary membership for the remainder of the membership year, upon payment of the next fiscal year dues.
*The proration policy applies only to new institutional members who are joining The Forum for the first time.
**Affiliate and individual members DO NOT receive the prorated credit, regardless of when they join.
