Working with CMI: Affiliates

CMI Affiliates are companies and organizations interested in being informed about CMI research outcomes and providing input to CMI on a continuing basis. Each Affiliate pays an annual membership fee, based on the organization size and type, and signs a Membership Agreement. Link to a list of current CMI Affiliates.

Affiliates Fees

The annual Affiliates fee is based on size of organization and level of membership:

  • $500 per year for Start-ups (less than 5 years old and/or have not completed an IPO), Universities, Not-for-Profits*, and FFRDCs.
  • $2,500 per year for other entities
  • No fee for Federal agencies, providing member benefits to staff who are government employees (not contractors)

*Research societies and industry trade groups can join as Affiliates, but CMI membership benefits do not flow down to a society's members.
