IPC’s membership department is constantly working to expand its portfolio of exclusive member benefits, services and membership options. With feedback from IPC members, the membership team has developed a more comprehensive dues structure to make it simple for all divisions, groups and employees of a company to access the rich suite of IPC member benefits.
“Our members spoke, we listened, and in an effort to increase engagement and ease of use, we are transitioning our Enterprise Membership to a revenue-based model which will give IPC the ability to optimally serve our membership efficiently and effectively,” said Tracy Riggan, IPC senior director, Member Support. “Additionally, this method aligns us with the structures of other associations of which many of our member companies may be a part,” she added.
Features of the Enterprise Membership option include:
- Gives companies an "all in" membership option to replace site-count tiered discount structure, making it much easier for existing members to increase their engagement with IPC
- Simplifies membership dues structure to prospective new members
- Provides efficient membership processing for buyers and IPC staff
- An upgraded listing in IPC’s buyer’s guide, IPC Global Marketplace
According to Riggan, individual site membership (2018 prices: $1,300 for primary, $1,100 for each additional when joining at the same time) is still available for those who prefer this option. “For companies that recognize the importance of giving multiple company sites access to IPC membership benefits, Enterprise Membership provides the same benefits as “single-site” membership to all employees at designated locations at significant savings over single-site membership dues” she said. “In addition, Enterprise members receive an upgraded listing in IPC Global Marketplace worth $500 and the assistance of the IPC team to help communicate the benefits throughout their company.”
