Sponsor Members are eligible for leadership positions, including a Board of Directors seat and all Steering Committee and Working Group leadership positions. Sponsor Members also can participate on IOWN technology Steering Committees.
General Membership is for companies that are interested in the world of IOWN technology and want to be a part of its development. With General Membership, a Company is able to vote in all Working Groups, make contributions, and suggest new work areas.
Academic or Research Membership is for non-profit entities that are organized and operated primarily as an educational entity or research organization under the laws and regulations of its domicile jurisdiction. This membership class was designed to give qualifying organizations the same rights as General membership, except without voting privileges and without the eligibility for a Vice Chair leadership position, for the reduced membership fee of $2,000 per year in recognition of their non-profit status.
