Who May Join EDRM?

EDRM membership is open to everyone, provided the time and money requirements are met. We reserve the right to exclude from membership individuals or organizations that, in our opinion, are unwilling to participate in a constructive manner; this a right we are extremely reluctant to exercise.

Members are expected to contribute their time and expertise, without which EDRM and its projects and initiatives could not function and would not succeed. We do not set minimum time requirements; rather, we ask that members make a good faith effort to be active, productive contributors. We strongly suggest that members limit themselves to one or two sets of activities.

Membership is for a 12-month period, renewable annually.  For example, membership for an organization or person joining in May, 2015 will need to be renewed 12 months later, in May 2016.

Membership does not include meeting attendance fees.

Membership fee structure effective December 15, 2014.
