Current IFO Members:
Read and Verify Understanding of Revised Membership Terms

The IFO Board of Directors recently revised the terms of IFO membership to adjust the cutoff date for cancellation. Previously, a member could cancel their annual membership at any time between April 1 and September 1.

To tighten the organization’s financial planning, the Board voted to adopt a cutoff date prior to the start of a new fiscal year. The new cancellation window of April 1 to June 15 greatly improves the organization’s ability to plan budgets responsibly and provide valuable services for its members.

The new membership language reads:

As a condition of membership, I hereby request and voluntarily authorize my employer, the State of Minnesota, to deduct from my earnings as a MnSCU University employee an amount equal to periodic dues applicable to IFO members.  This authorization shall remain in effect and be irrevocable unless I revoke it by sending written notice by U.S. Mail to the IFO, postmarked during the window period of April 1 to June 15.  This authorization will renew and remain irrevocable from year to year, unless I revoke it in writing during the window period, irrespective of my membership in the IFO. 

Please enter your information below and check the box to indicate that you have read and understand the revised language.
