Some events will also be open to non IFMA Seattle members that are active in a specific council's industry. Council membership at the international level is not required to participate at the local level, but it is highly encouraged. With Seattle chapter membership, to join the international council there is an additional charge of $55.00 annually. There is no additional charge to join a local council.
