How DROPS is funded

DROPS is a non-profit-making body and strives for self-funding status.

The income generated through DROPS Membership fees and the sale of DROPS products and services provides the revenue for administering the initiative and for supporting the development and production of new products and deliverables on an ongoing basis.

A one-off joining fee for DROPS is applied for each new member and annual membership fees applied thereafter. Associate membership is available at no cost to recognized non-profit-making industry bodies.

Member organizations can also contribute by sponsoring specific products or projects on a voluntary basis. Through their respective Steering Committee, each Regional Chapter resources their respective Regional DROPS Forum meetings and local administration.
