~ Membership Application ~
OpenMPE is offering a "zero
cost" membership. This is being done to identify the
initial "rank-and-file" of the community that desires to
continue using the "MPE environment" beyond the end of 2006.&nbs
It will be used to determine how later "fee based" memberships
should be set up and their potential costs. Membership at the
"zero cost" level does NOT require you to continue as a member
when we switch to a "fee based" structure. However, it
does give you voting privileges in OpenMPE issues take to the membership.<
