Information about types of membership can be found below.
The section below, is taken from SIRDUG's bylaws, which can be read in their entirety by clicking here.
There are three (3) types of memberships, Individual Members, Vendor Members and Board of Directors Membership.
Requirements For Each Type:
Individual Members are persons committed to obtaining and sharing information on the effective utilization of Related Database products. They will be responsible for paying dues as determined, from time to time, by the Board of Directors. Individual members will have one vote for the election of directors and other such matters as may be brought to a vote at a meeting of the members. Individual members may serve on the Board of Directors.
Vendor Members are a part of database professionals or vendor employees selling database related products. They will be responsible for paying dues as determined, from time to time, by the Board of Directors. To avoid Conflict of Interest, Vendor Members will not have a vote and may not serve on the Board of Directors.
Board of Directors Members are persons serving in a volunteer administrative or officer position for the organization. They will have the option of paying dues because of their volunteer time and responsibilities on the organizations board. Board Members will have one vote for the election of their peers and other such matters as may be brought to a vote at a meeting of the members. Board Members may, from time to time, meet in executive session for the purpose of conducting the business of the organization.
Dues and Fees:
Dues for membership as determined by the Board of Directors, will be assessed and collected on an “as needed” basis. Fees will be collected at the business meeting to defray the cost of the meetings. Because S.I.R.D.U.G. Board Members and officers volunteer their time, dues for said officers are optional.
