In addition to full membership, UNITE also offers access to the UNITE site and certain resources with a Free Community Access User Id.

To become a Member of UNITE, an individual must pay their annual membership fee, or be entitled to membership by fee-paid attendance at the most recent UNITE conference, or be entitled to membership due to their organization paying a fee for an Organization Membership in UNITE.
Individuals can join UNITE with an annual membership fee of $100. This establishes the individual as a member of UNITE and grants them access to the UNITE Member only section.
When an individual acquires UNITE membership, their organization or company is considered a member of UNITE for voting purposes as the UNITE organizations each have a single vote on elections or any other matters that come before the UNITE Community.
When an individual applies for membership by submitting the membership form, their information will automatically be submitted to the Board of Director’s membership chairperson for review. The membership chairperson will review the organization’s qualifications for membership and recommend subsequent action by the Board of Directors for approval.
In the event that the Board of Directors determine that the individual or their organization does not meet the qualifications for UNITE membership, the Board will terminate the membership and refund the membership fees.
