NCOIC offers membership to individuals, organizations and special teams, with categories featuring different privileges, responsibilities and annual fees.

Why Join NCOIC?

Member companies and organizations designate a primary and alternate to be their official representatives to the consortium; their other employees are welcome to participate in NCOIC activities. Individuals are also able to join the consortium based on their expertise and interests.

Groups of individuals, companies, agencies and/or partners can form an Integrated Business Team in order to use the consortium’s experts, resources and infrastructure to focus on a topic of mutual interest and achieve business objectives. Use of the NCOIC legal environment allows industry members to have an open and ongoing dialogue without conflict of interest and/or ITAR issues.
