Membership Overview

Why Join IFI?

The primary reason for any company to join a trade association is to gain the collective strength and knowledge to accomplish tasks, projects, and objectives that are not practical or economi-cally feasible for a single company. But beyond this general benefit, there are many tangible and specific benefits to be gained from IFI membership. These include:

  • A market-oriented membership structure
    IFI's Division structure is based on where your products are used, not what specific products you produce. This promotes a closer relationship between manufacturers and their markets which, in turn, promotes a closer working relationship for resolving common issues and concerns.

  • Technical Support
    IFI is committed to being the leader in providing fastener technology leadership. IFI members receive unparalleled technical support in product design, manufacturing practices, quality assurance, and standards development and interpretation. The IFI technical staff is deeply involved in the continuing development and evolution of the industry's standards through membership and leadership in the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), SAE International, the Research Council on Steel Construction (RCSC), and the International Organization of Standards (ISO).
  • Valuable contacts
    IFI membership offers ongoing and invaluable contacts and relationships with the major players in your industry, including your peers, your customers, and your suppliers. Quite simply, it's your best opportunity to interact with your entire industry.

  • Timely and insightful information
    IFI is your best resource for the latest news about the events, issues, and trends that impact your business. You'll also find that IFI is a substantial repository for information pertinent to the industry.
