Membership and Dues

There are four levels of membership in the WTA. Each provides for a different level of involvement in the organization. 

Executive Members have all rights of the organization including full voting rights of an organizational and by-laws nature, full voting rights on standards issues, and majority representation on the Board of Directors with 10 of the 15 seats. Members serving on committees do not have to be Executive Members, however, committee chairmen will be required to hold Executive Membership in the organization. Executive Membership provides for two representatives from each company, but only one vote per membership. Executive members can send up to five people to a meeting without incurring meeting charges. Annual dues for Executive Membership are $5,000. To provide the WTA organization the support it needs to move forward, the WTA encourages larger companies (e.g., annual sales of $1B or more) to join, or renew their memberships, at an executive level.

Associate Members will have full voting rights on standards issues and will be represented on the Board of Directors with a minority of the seats (5). Associate Membership includes two representatives from each company, but only one vote per membership. Associate members can send up to two people to a meeting without incurring meeting charges. Annual dues for Associate Members are $2,500.

Affiliate Members will receive timely information from the WTA and are invited to observe all WTA functions, take part in discussions, and will receive informational mailings. Affiliate members may serve on committees and have a vote within the committee. The affiliate membership is intended for companies that do not have the financial resources (e.g. startups) to join at an executive or associate level. Affiliate members can send one person to a meeting without incurring meeting charges. Annual dues for Affiliate Members are $750.

Individual Memberships are available to individuals interested in the organization who wish to receive information regarding activities of the WTA, including the newsletter and other informational mailings. Individual Members may attend all WTA meetings and take part in the discussions and can serve on a committee, but have no voting rights. This tier is intended for consultants, analysts and press, not individuals of corporations. Annual dues for Individual Members are $100.
