Spend Matters Almanac: Membership Organization

“Knowledge-centric organizations based commercially on recurring subscription revenues – primarily from practitioner members and secondarily from the providers who serve them. They can be not-for-profits (profession-based, industry-specific, and/or geographically based) or regular, for-profit, organization. For-profits can take many forms (Group Purchasing Organizations, advisory and/or media firms). May also provide project-based professional services, training, and for-fee content (off the shelf and/or custom).”
