Membership of AGIFORS is open to employees of airlines and airline associations, who are qualified practitioners in OR and/or working in the OR field. There are three classes of membership: MEMBER, CORRESPONDENT, and DISTINGUISHED MEMBER, depending on qualifications. Generally Members must have a university degree (or equivalent academic qualification) and must either be affiliated with a member society of IFORS or have at least two years of practical OR experience. If the applicant does not qualify as a member, but is interested in this field, he/she can apply to be a Correspondent. Voting rights at the Annual General Meeting, for electing officials, or on any other AGIFORS matter is reserved for Members. Distinguished membership is bestowed by Council on individuals who have made significant contributions in the application of Operational Research for air transportation.
