Is there a Fee?

Yes. IMR has a fairly low-cost membership fee (Singles-$30, Household-$40) that covers web costs, postage/marketing, member-benefit investments (future items such as highly discounted Life Flight annual fees, training program, etc), and the like. Rest assured, IMR is operated as a non-profit, but does not have non-profit 501(c)3 status at this point (we're new afterall).  This was originally intended to be an annual fee, but at this time there is only a fee to become a member of Idaho Mountain Recreation.
