Small Business Introductory Membership
Wi-Fi Alliance® is excited to offer two new membership levels designed to help smaller companies experience the benefits of Wi-Fi Alliance membership with lower introductory dues.
Small Business Introductory Participant
- Similar benefits as Contributor membership: Ability to certify products and participate and vote in task groups, however the key difference is that Small Business Introductory Participants are not voting members of the organization as set forth in section 4.1 of the Bylaws. Certification fees are the same as Contributors.
- Annual dues:
2018 = US$7,500/year
2019 = US$7,725/year
Small Business Introductory Implementer
- Same benefits as Implementer membership: Ability to implement certified solutions in products and use the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ brand. Similar to Implementers, Small Business Introductory Implementers are not voting members of the organization as set forth in section 4.1 of the Bylaws. Certification fees are the same as Implementers.
- Annual dues:
2018 = US$2,500/year
2019 = US$2,575/year
Small Business Introductory memberships are available to new members with annual revenues less than US$10M. These membership levels are available for the first two years of membership if the company continues to meet the requirements.
- We are a current Wi-Fi Alliance member company. Can we change to one of the new membership levels?
If your company’s membership was new in 2017 and your company meets the qualifications for the Introductory membership, you may take advantage of this special offer for your 2018 membership. Please submit your most recent financial statement to email@example.com with your request to change levels.
- What is required to show our company’s revenue qualifies for the discounted membership?
Please submit your most recent financial statement to firstname.lastname@example.org with your membership inquiry.
- If our company’s revenue exceeds US$10M during our membership, do we have to change our membership level?
Your Small Business Introductory membership is good for the full year; you do not have to change your membership level that year. However, you will need to renew as a Contributor or Implementer level member the following year.
- If our company was a member in the past, can we still take advantage of this offer?
Yes. Your company may rejoin under the Small Business Introductory level. However, this offer can only be used one time for a two year maximum.
- Can we sign up our subsidiary as an Affiliate member under our Small Business Introductory membership?
Affiliates are not considered with the Small Business Introductory membership. Affiliates are allowed under Contributor or Sponsor members in good standing.
