Who may become members?
Any person who was raised, educated, or lived in Saudi Arabia as a child and/or minor dependent of an employee of the Arabian American Oil Company (a.k.a. ARAMCO, Saudi Aramco and the Saudi Arabian Oil Company) or any ARAMCO affiliated company is considered an Aramco brat and may become a member. Although we identify Brats by the year they graduated (or would have graduated) from 9th grade, you're a Brat if you attended an Aramco school (or were simply a minor dependent who lived in one of the camps) for any length of time.
Why are there different membership levels?
Historically, ABI has asked our membership to contribute AdBak (administrative baksheesh) each 2-year term to help cover the organization's overhead costs. "Supporting Membership" fee is just that - AdBak. Since some Brats like to donate more than AdBak, we have added another level, "Sustaining Membership." It is only 1-click to pay AdBak and donate a little extra.
What does the membership fee pay for?
