How to Become a Member

CORD membership is open to all individuals and organizations who want to contribute meaningfully to the project. To get started, read through the suggestions on our Contributor Guide and jump into the community — there’s no permission or acceptance you need from us. As an open source project, having an active set of volunteers is crucial to our success.

We do offer membership tiers above the volunteer level and that may be a good fit if you are looking for additional help from us or if you’re looking for other ways to promote the health of the community. Various levels of ONF membership provide benefits such as project steering, co-marketing and technical support.
