All members are governed by our Bylaws and Policies.
We no longer require a membership fee, but we do ask for certain profile data in our membership data base to be kept up to date - at least annually. Besides your contact info, we'll ask you to periodically review the information you have provided about your OpenView environment. We only give your email and product information to 3rd parties with your specific opt-in, so rest assured that the information is only used to help us better provide services to the OpenView professional community.
There are 3 types of Memberships available:
- Full Membership
All individuals who are employed in an organization with a current license for an Hewlett-Packard OpenView product are eligible for the Full Membership. Membership is held by the individual.

Individuals who do not hold a Hewlett-Packard OpenView license, but have a significant interest in enterprise management using Hewlett-Packard OpenView products, are eligible for the Associate Membership. Membership is held by the individual. Associate Members are eligible for all OVFI provided services, but are NOT allowed to be an officer or Director of OpenView Forum International.
