 Membership

Being a member of the RFID Professional Institute is much more than just filling in a form and paying a membership subscription.

It is an opportunity to become part of a global community of RFID professionals who care that their profession is recognized as a key contributor to industry, governments and society as a whole.

It is an opportunity to learn more not only about about RFID technology but about how that technology can be implemented to improve processes, quality, efficiency, effectiveness and safety across so many aspects of our lives.

It is an opportunity to share your own knowledge and expertise in order to help others advance.

But most of all, it is an opportunity to contribute to the founding of a new profession that has the ability to change society. Few get to experience such an opportunity in their lifetime.
