Except as set forth in paragraph A below, membership in the Organization is open to legal entities distinguishable by their Federal Employer Identification Numbers (FEIN) and/or their Tax Identification Number (TIN). Qualified legal entities include but are not limited to sole proprietorships, partnerships and corporations that are holders of unclaimed property; service providers to the unclaimed property industry; as well as other groups or entities that act as agents and/or consultants on behalf of a company or legal entity ("member”).

Members may also designate other member representatives ("associates”) who are eligible to serve on committees, hold office and perform other duties as further provided for in these bylaws and the organization's standard operating procedures, but are not eligible to vote on behalf of the member.
