This category of membership is aimed at larger/major commercial companies or other large organisations that use or supply ITSM services or products, employ many people (50+) who could benefit from ITSMF UK’s services, and therefore are looking for a wider, more tailored relationship with the Forum.
Critically, of course, corporate members themselves usually already have lots of ITSM expertise and experience and so ITSMF UK seeks to work closely with such organisations to achieve a two-way flow of knowledge, help showcase their expertise, and work together to help spread best practice for the benefit of the sector overall.
There are two levels of Corporate Member:
Corporate Member organisations nominate a main contact, who provides a list of staff eligible to join the membership. This list is used to maintain the member details on our database and to grant access to the ‘members-only’ sections of our website.
