Membership Information

Guest 
fees for non-members who wish to attend meetings are a minimum of $35.00 per meeting for the March, September and December meetings, and a minimum of $125.00 (includes a membership for the remaining two annual sessions) for the June meeting.

Student Member fees are $25.00 a year and include the same benefits as above with greater savings. There are no student discounts on the guest fees for individual meetings, so a student membership for the year is automatically registered when payment is received for just one meeting. To be accepted, all student membership registrations and renewals require a current valid student number with the name of the college or university.


Individual Member fees are $125.00 a year. Membership currently covers fees to our four meetings per year (guest fees for all four meetings alone would add up to a minimum of $140.00). As a member of DRIE Ottawa you will enjoy a considerable cost savings as well as the benefit of access to the Members Area of the website, which contains among other features, copies of presentations from previous meetings.

Corporate membership fees are $495.00 a year. Corporate memberships allow for any five employees of the same organization to attend the quarterly meetings (the individuals can be different for each meeting). Membership information and renewal notices will be sent to one contact who can also be responsible for e-mail distribution within the organization. If desired, the organization's contact can provide the names, e-mail addresses, and phone numbers of individuals to allow them to receive e-mails directly and register for meetings as corporate members, as well as have access to the members-only section.

Invoicing occurs automatically via e-mail when you register online for a membership.

If you already are a DRIE member and want to renew your membership for the next calendar year, please login and go to the Pay Membership Dues link provided beside your membership information.

Renewal notices for the next calendar year are automatically issued in November.

For any questions or concerns regarding memberships, invoicing or renewals, please e-mail the Membership Coordinator.

For questions regarding online payment or PayPal, please e-mail the Treasurer.
