NDIA Corporate Membership
(Changes coming for 2025)

Knowledge. Visibility. Contacts.

At NDIA, we know the defense industry is as diverse as the needs of our warfighters. Whether you're a small business or multinational corporation, we understand your goals.

Our Corporate membership has been expanded to better reflect those diverse needs and now includes Industry, Industry Partner, and Academic categories.

Annual membership dues will be based on your Corporate membership category.


Academic (New for 2025)

Academic Corporate Membership extends member benefits to institutions of higher learning, organized or otherwise chartered within the U.S., whose primary purpose is education beyond high school including research institutions affiliated with these institutions.


Annual membership dues will be based on your institution's DoD-Grant revenue (in U.S. Dollars).

DoD-Grants & Contracts  < $10M: $745

DoD-Grants & Contracts  > $10M: $2,950

Organizations with < $10M will also be eligible for a 3-year discounted membership.

Industry Partner (New for 2025)

Industry Partner Corporate Members are companies whose primary customer is not the U.S. DoD, but directly support corporations whose primary customer is the U.S Department of Defense (DoD).


Annual membership dues will be based on your organization's number of employees.

1-50 employees - $745

51-500 employees - $2,950

500+ employees - $4,900

Organizations with 1-50 employees will also be eligible for a 3-year discounted membership.

Industry (Updated Dues for 2025)

Industry Corporate Members are U.S.-registered organizations, including primes and sub-contractors, providing goods and services to the Department of Defense (DoD).

(Organizations registered outside the U.S. that are interested in joining as corporate members can find information on our Allied Industry memberships here)


Dues Calculator

Annual membership dues for Industry members will continue to be based on your organization's defense-related revenue (in U.S. Dollars). This revenue includes both prime contracts and subcontracts for products and services for all U.S. federal defense-related agencies, DoD and its combat support agencies.


All Corporate Membership categories (except Allied) receive the same access to NDIA’s broad range of benefits.

All corporate members also enjoy a complimentary listing in our online National Defense Mega Directory, a search engine where government purchasers and potential industry partners can learn about your organization’s products and services.
