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.
NEW Forum 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 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 above applies only to new institutional members who are joining The Forum for the first time.
Previous Forum members who rejoin The Forum must pay the full cost of annual membership and will not receive a prorated credit. After April 1 (in the last fiscal quarter), returning members will be charged the cost of the fourth quarter (1/4 dues) PLUS the full cost of the following fiscal year.
