I'm not quite sure what you're getting at, but I'll tell you how membership

Every year that an entity gets address space from ARIN they pay ARIN an
allocation fee.  That fee includes membership.  So if an entity does not get
address space in a given year, then they are not (automatically) a member. 
However they are free to pay the $500 per year fee to become a member.
