Non-Ferrous Founders' Society Membership Information



NFFS membership is open exclusively for businesses. NFFS does not offer individual memberships. This allows NFFS to focus membership benefits and services at the organizational level. NFFS membership is an effective resource to help your foundry simplify its regulatory compliance activities, keep abreast of new technology and government regulations, reduce day-to-day operating expenses, improve plant profitiability levels and much more.



The NFFS membership year is from July 1 - June 30 of the following year. Membership dues will be pro-rated for new members that join the Society mid-term.


Regular Membership
