As a member of the TBM Council, you’ll be part of a community that is helping spread awareness – inside and outside of your organization – about the value TBM brings to organizations. It is rewarding to join the TBM Council, and there are four levels of membership. Read below to find out which level you will fall into.
General members are TBM Champions who want to learn more about technology business management and advance the discipline. Qualifying members come from organizations with greater than $10 million in overall IT budget and include executive IT or finance leaders (CIOs, CTOs, and CFOs); managers or senior IT; and finance practitioners (VP/director/manager of IT, TBMA, TBM Office, and enterprise architect). All approved members will be accepted into the General Member Category. If you would like to upgrade your membership to a Principal level, please reach out to email@example.com.
Principal members are TBM Influencers who have a TBM story to share. Principal members are leaders within their organizations who agree to share their expertise with the greater TBM community. Principal members are invited to participate in Council events and programs, such as speaking at regional meetings; hosting and participating in webinars; and contributing blogs on TBM Council Online. Principal members must meet the qualifying criteria for General members, be approved by TBM Council management, and sign the Principal Membership Agreement. If you currently have a General membership and would like to upgrade your membership to a Principal level, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
TBM Council Associate membership is reserved for any technology or finance consultant or educator seeking to advance their knowledge of Technology Business Management. Associated members enjoy limited TBM Council Online access, early access to research and content, and access to the TBM Book, among other things. You may be assigned this level of membership if we believe it is better suited for you. Please reach out to email@example.com with any questions.
Observing members are members who are currently in job transition or are students looking to learn more about TBM. Observing members may attend any of our events and join communities, but may not be able to join certain workgroup programs. If you register for TBM Council membership with a personal email address, you will automatically be accepted as an observing member. To upgrade to a General membership, please re-apply with a company email address.
