PRIMA offers several categories of membership, based on the make up of your entity or organization. The categories include:
A. Government (voting)
State agencies, local governments and intergovernmental risk sharing pool administrators join PRIMA as regular voting members. Additional benefits include subscriptions to Public Risk, access to members-only area of the Web site, program announcements, discounted registration fees for all PRIMA seminars, conference and publications and all access to the PRIMA Cybrary. State agencies, local governments and intergovernmental risk sharing pool administrators must have a government membership to qualify for an associate membership.
Each Government Member will be entitled to up to three votes in the affairs of the Association to be cast by its designated representative(s), provided the entity pays government membership dues for each designated representative.
Membership: $385 per year.
B. Associate (non-voting)
Additional individuals from government member state agencies, local governments and intergovernmental risk sharing pool staff that already have a PRIMA government membership can join PRIMA as associate members. Regional offices that specialize in the same sector as the government membership may also join as associate members. An associate membership only covers one individual and not an entire entity/organization. This membership is meant to further personalize a PRIMA membership. Associate members receive all membership benefits including a subscription to Public Risk and program announcements, plus discounts on PRIMA seminars, conferences and publications. Additional benefits include receiving PRIMA emails as well as access to members-only area of Web site and access to the PRIMA Cybrary. Associate members do not receive voting rights in the association.
