FRI Members

FRI Members represent regulatory, industry, and consumer stakeholders across the United States. Members, or the organizations they represent, provide financial support for the Institute. Members enjoy insider access to the FRI staff and member network, and discounted registration for FRI events.

The FRI Advisory Board was established in 1988 as an essential component of the FRI. The Advisory Board offers professional advice, identifies the FRI’s strategic direction, and takes leadership in identifying and organizing topics and speakers for several FRI programs.
