What is a Jasig Institutional Member?
A Jasig Institutional Member is a college or university that helps support Jasig's goals. Typically, Institutional Members are schools that make use of one or more of Jasig's open source products. Membership is one way of "giving back" to the community. Membership fees, and participation in Jasig through mailing lists, software contributions, conferences, and other events, help strengthen our organization and sustain our efforts.

What are the benefits of Institutional Membership?
Organizations will benefit from Jasig membership in the following ways:
- Your membership will help to ensure that any Jasig software you implement is sponsored by a self-sustaining, growing organization of peers.
- Institutional Members are eligible to vote for representatives of the Jasig board of directors and for stakeholders who sit on project steering committees. These are the organizational bodies that drive the strategic direction for Jasig and its products.
- Jasig conference participants from Member organizations will be eligible to register at reduced, member-only fee levels.
- Member organizations will receive advanced news of Jasig announcements and activities.
- Members are consulted from time to time on strategic and operational issues.
What is the annual fee to join as an Institutional Member?
