The Membership year runs from January until December.
|Type of membership||Cost (2022 and 2023)|
|Full member annual membership||US$ 2000|
|Liaison member annual membership||US$ 100*|
The membership fee is subject to change each year.
The membership fee is not refundable upon membership termination.
*In 2020, the FIRST Board voted to reduce the liaison fee to $100. As a result, the liaison discount for the annual conference registration was discontinued.
An applying FIRST team must pay an initial one-time application fee of US$ 800 after its membership is confirmed. This fee only applies to full memberships, not to liaison memberships.
A new member is invoiced when the member is joining FIRST, for:
Full (team) members: the initial one-time application fee, if applicable the per month pro-rated amount of the annual fee (a team only pays the part of the annual fee for the remainder of the membership year)
Liaison members: $100 for remainder of the FIRST calendar year (Jan-Dec) regardless of month joined.
Invoices are sent as PDF per e-mail to the member's FIRST representative and are available for download on the FIRST Portal under Billing & Payment. FIRST does not manage third party invoicing software. Processing and payment of the FIRST invoice is the responsibility of the member.
Full (team) Payments can be done by:
All details on payment are specified on the invoices that are sent out, or available on request at email@example.com.
