IEEE SA Membership for Organizations

IEEE SA offers organizations such as corporations, universities and governments a membership option that affords participants the ability to engage and influence technology development to ensure their organizations’ interests are represented.

This IEEE SA Membership option, also known as Entity Membership, is recommended for companies and organizations in which standards play a pivotal role in research, product development, and marketing. Organizational Members, or Entity Members, enjoy networking and access to a broad cross-section of industry thought leaders and standards development participants.

All entity standards are balloted using a “one-entity, one-vote” principle, ensuring a uniform playing field among standards collaborators.

The Entity Membership Program invites diverse, global participation and cross-discipline expertise:

  • Small-Midsize Companies
  • Multinational & Global Corporations
  • Government Agencies
  • Trade Associations
  • User Groups
  • Universities
  • Other Standards Development Organizations (SDOs)

Program Tiers Designed to Fit Your Organization

IEEE SA offers Entity Membership tiers based on the size of your organization.

Entity Members engage in the standards development process with unlimited balloting privileges, eligibility for leadership positions, networking opportunities and value-added benefits. Entity Members and Entity Member Representatives can also exercise voting privileges in an unlimited number of entity-based projects. (Additional fees may apply)

What would you like to do next?

Even if you’re not ready for membership, you can still take part in the individual-based standards development process. Many working groups 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.
