Membership - Individual

Individual Membership & Projects

Individual Membership is designed for individuals and independent professionals interested in participating in standards development with the IEEE-SA. While membership is not required for participation, membership allows participants to ballot on standards and assume leadership roles in standards working groups.

Individual projects follow a set path from concept to completion, which adheres to the principles of due process, openness and consensus building. These principles allow for equity and fair play, so that no one dominates the process. While participants may represent the interests of their employers, individual members participate in the process and ballot as individuals, rather than as a corporate entity.

Membership - Corporate

Corporate Membership & Projects

Corporate Membership is recommended for companies in which standards play a pivotal role in research, product development and marketing. Corporate participants enjoy networking and exposure across a broad cross-section of industry thought leaders and standards participants.

The Corporate Program allows companies to engage and influence technology development to ensure their business interests are heard and represented. Ensuring a uniform playing field among standards collaborators, all corporate standards are balloted using a “one-company, one-vote” principle.

Not Ready? No Problem.

Even if you're not ready for membership, you can still take part in the standards development process. Many working groups using the Individual Process welcome the participation of non-members. You can contribute your ideas and help to create the standard. You can even make use of our myProject™ system.

However, you will be unable to actually ballot on the standard or hold any type of leadership role in the working group until you become a member.
