Membership Levels

Individual
The annual membership is $600 for corporate members and $300 for members in government and non-profit organizations.

Corporate Underwriter
The annual membership is $1,500, and provides an individual membership, plus the member company or organization is listed in all promotional materials and the Forum website as a Corporate Underwriter.

Corporate Mentoring Sponsor
The annual membership of $2,500 entitles a legal department to enroll its general counsel and up to eight managing counsel. The member company will be prominently listed in all promotional materials as a Corporate Mentoring Sponsor. This membership is in furtherance of one of the Forum’s central missions: mentoring legal department leaders through professional development.

Legal Department Memberships
The annual membership is $1,200 for corporate and $900 for government and non-profit, and provides membership for the general counsel, and up to three qualified managing counsel. Each additional manager is $300 (corporate) and $225 (gov’t/non-profit).

Displaced General Counsel
General and managing counsel who leave their company and are seeking employment as a general or managing counsel may extend their Forum membership as a Displaced General Counsel (DGC) for up to 18 months from displacement. During this period of unemployment, the DGC will receive all of the benefits of an individual membership, with the exception of free attendance to the annual conference. The conference fee for DGC members will be one half of the individual corporate membership ($300). The annual membership fee is deferred until the DGC member secures a new general counsel or managing counsel position, at which time the Forum expects the DGC member to make his or her best effort to join the Forum and pay the annual membership fee for the remainder of that calendar year, and for the following calendar year. If the DGC takes a full-time non-qualifying position (not as an in-house general or managing counsel), his or her DGC membership will terminate.
