TULSA, Oklahoma, Aug. 8, 2019/Petroleum Equipment Institute/ -- PEI will expand membership in its Priority Club to 60 members across three tiers in 2020.

The restructuring allows 40 more PEI companies to take advantage of extra benefits reserved for PEI Priority Club members. The new tiers are Gold, Silver and Bronze.

“PEI historically capped membership in the PEI Priority Club at 20 companies, which meant some of our most eager, active companies have been on the waitlist for years,” said Rick Long, executive vice president and general counsel at PEI. “Through conversations among the board of directors and with other associations, we realized we can serve our members better. Offering three tiers in the Priority Club opens opportunities for our smaller companies and allows PEI companies of all sizes to be as active as they choose.” 

Membership in each tier is capped at 20 companies. Current Priority Club members and companies on the waitlist finalized their tier selections this week. Remaining spots are now open to all PEI members on a first-come, first-served basis.

The new structure and benefits will begin Jan. 1, 2020. Priority Club annual fees will be invoiced during regular PEI membership renewal this fall. Annual fees for the new Priority Club tiers are:

  • Gold: $15,000
  • Silver: $10,000
  • Bronze: $6,500

Priority Club benefits include priority booth selection for the PEI Convention at the NACS Show, invitations to the President’s Priority Club Reception, early convention sponsorship selection, Freeman services exhibitor discounts, early exhibitor booth move in, public recognition and tiered discounts for advertising and sponsorships. A complete breakdown of Gold, Silver and Bronze benefits is available at

To apply for the 2020 Priority Club and reserve a spot in one of the three tiers, PEI companies must complete the Priority Club application and return to
