member:

... one who belongs; to have the proper qualifications to claim a membership.

Memberships in organizations are generally either freely granted as participation privileges or as membership privileges obtained by paying money (membership dues).

Members typically directly or indirectly associate with others in a group. Indirect association membership means having a status based on receiving membership benefits without necessarily building or maintaining relationships with others in the group.

Membership organizations are sometimes divided into active members and associate members. For example, a professional group made up of, say, corporate real estate executives and asset managers may be divided into an active membership and an associate membership with the latter being resource and service providers. The latter also means that certain privileges and rights, such as holding office, are usually not extended.

Dues are not paid by members of the .network core user group. Our (who we are) use of the word member is simply a way of distinguishing those who have stakeholder positions in the enterprise and economic development process from those who are otherwise users. For example, users of reference materials available in the Enterprise and Economic Development Library may not be participants in the .network mission, rather they may be members of the general category of users. Everyone has unencumbered, free access to .network websites no matter how they are regarded as member users.
