DCMI has substantial revised its membership programs with the goal of broadening participation for public- and private-sector institutions, and, for the first time, membership participation by individuals. Implementation of the revised programs will take place in two phases with the first starting immediately with the Institutional Partner program for public-sector institutions wishing to participate in DCMI governance. The Supporting Partner program provides private-sector companies with the means to financially support the work of DCMI. Beginning in the 1st quarter of 2013, the second phase will include a Supporting Member program that includes discounted registration fees for the DCMI conferences and webinars. Information about all of the programs can be found at http://dublincore.org/about/membershipPrograms/.
