For profit corporations: NISO dues are based on a company’s total gross revenue. A Voting Member is considered to be the parent company. A division, affiliate, or subsidiary can join as a Voting Member, but the dues will be assessed at the rate appropriate for the parent organization. If the parent company is already a Voting Member, and a division, affiliate, or subsidiary wants to join separately, the fee for the affiliate, division, or subsidiary is based on their
individual gross revenue.

Non-profit and government agencies: NISO dues are based on total operating expenses (excluding any pass-though monies, cost of goods sold, etc.).
