Membership in the RIT's Gear Research Consortium is open to all Companies, Trade groups, Federal Research and Development organizations, Government-owned Contractor Operated laboratories, Universities, and other Non-Profits on an annual basis based on a contribution of an annual approved membership donation amount in the form of monies, services, or equipment (only for non-profits and universities), or an annual monetary membership gift to the consortium (for Companies).
Membership in the RIT's Gear Research Consortium will be on an annual basis. For-profit members will pay a nonrefundable annual membership gift of $7,500 if the organization has less than 200 employees, or $12,000 if the organization has more than 200 employees that should be paid annually before the expiration date of the previous year of membership to continue as a member for the next year. Membership in the RIT's Gear Research Consortium for not-for-profit organizations will require a gift commensurate with levels of donations in the form of monies, services, or equipment as determined by the RIT's Gear Consortium Management Committee on a consistent case-by-case basis. There will be a one-time initiation fee directed to the efforts of the consortium that will depend on the size of each organization: $5,000 for organizations with less than 200 employees and $10,000 for organizations with more than 200 employees.
Currently, the one-time initiation fee is being waived for new members! Do not wait and join us now.
