The Basis for the Membership Fee Structure
Interferry’s membership fee structure is based on the following factors:
- Members pay in proportion to the benefits they derive from Interferry’s regulatory and policy work, which represent a significant portion of the Association’s operating costs.
- As a result, Operators pay more than Non-Operators and we have divided membership into two broad categories: Operators and Associates.
- Member fees are also based on the ability to pay, which translates to larger firms paying more than smaller firms.
- Operator size is measured by fleet gross tonnage (GT). Associate size is measured by gross annual revenue (turnover).
Operators in Levels 1 – 3 automatically have a seat on the Operators Policy Committee (OPC). This committee has the responsibility for supervising the regulatory and policy work of the association. Any operator may upgrade their membership level if they wish to join the OPC.
Operator and Associate members may have multiple employees included in their Interferry membership.
Individual memberships are for those people not associated with any company or who are with a company but are personally paying their own membership fee. Retired memberships are for those people who are retired but want to keep in contact with the industry. No company name will be attached to these memberships.
Any member in good standing may resign from membership in the following year by sending a written resignation to the Membership and Registration Manager Nicole.Bond@interferry.com by September 30 of the current year, otherwise your membership will be automatically renewed January 1 of each year.
