In 2009, SISO established an Organizational Membership program, which is open to any organization, including those that do not normally engage in marketing or sponsorship activities: US and non-US governmental agencies, National Laboratories, Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs), University Affiliated Research Centers (UARCs), etc., as well as US and non-US corporations.
Organizational membership includes all benefits of SISO sponsorship, plus the following additional benefits:
- Specified numbers of individual memberships (new or renewal),to be designated by the organization's primary membership Point of Contact. These allow access to member-only areas of the SISO website, including SISO standards, SISO-developed IEEE standards, and papers and presentations from the most recent Workshops.
- Options to purchase pre-paid blocks of Workshop registrations at substantial discounts.
- 25% (rather than 10%) discounts for exhibit booth fees for Strategic, Principal, and Sustaining Organizational Members.
- Meetings with SISO leadership at SIWs and via individual teleconferences to discuss their organization's experiences interacting with SISO, any issues they may perceive, and any recommendations they may have regarding SISO activities or standards.
