UNIFIED MEMBERSHIP

LOCAL SCIFTS MEMBERSHIP IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

 TO JOIN THE SECTION, YOU WILL NEED TO RENEW YOUR MEMBERSHIP THROUGH IFT at www.ift.org

Become a Member of IFT

On July 12, 2013 the IFT Board of Directors passed a motion to unify IFT membership. The Southern California Section IFT will be leading the way by implementing unified membership for our section this September.  We are working with IFT to ensure that the IFT brand is experienced at all levels and across all touch points of our organization.  Whether your experience is at the global level or the local level, our goal is to deliver a globally consistent and locally relevant experience for our collective members.

Over the past two years IFT has worked with 17 sections and subsections to shape the resources, systems, and processes to better support all of our members at the local level.

What does this mean for you?

  • You will see the Southern California Section IFT as part of your IFT membership.

  • You will receive access to all of your IFT and section member benefits.

  • Please anticipate receiving more information from both your section and IFT on how to make the most of your membership.

How will SCIFTS implement unified membership?

  • All section-only members will receive complimentary access to IFT membership for one full year .

  • Upon renewal, all former section only members will receive a one-time renewal offer of $99 + SCIFTS dues.

  • All IFT only members will receive SCIFTS membership and will then pay the section dues as they renew.

Background

 

The IFT Board of Directors tasked the Section Engagement Advisory Panel with strategizing the best systems and processes to foster a globally consistent and locally relevant membership experience. For more detailed information on the pilot program (which is the model for unified membership) please visit our website: http://www.ift.org/community/sections/section-pilot-program.aspx.
