How can I join as Full Member?

'Full Membership' is a variant of associate membership with additional rights. 

The procedure for joing the consortium is:

Step 1: download the Wireless Power Consortium Agreement and decide whether your company agrees with the terms of this agreement.

Step 2: Annex C (for associate members with full access rights), and have it signed by someone authorized to sign on behalf of your company. Here is the form:

Annex C - application form for associate members with full access rights ("Full Members")

Step 3: Send two paper copies with original signatures, by courier service, to

The Wireless Power Consortium

Piscataway, NJ 08854
USA
Tel: +1-732-465-5843

Step 4: The Steering Group of the consortium decides the the approval of the membership application. This usually takes about two weeks for associate membership.

Step 5: The administrator will countersign the membership application, provided it is correctly filled in, and return one of the paper copies with original signatures. You are now a member of the Wireless Power Consortium.

Step 6: The financial administrator of the WPC, IEEE-ISTO, will send you an invoice for the membership fee. Please pay the invoice on time, otherwise your membership benefits will be suspended.

New members receive an invoice for membership until December 31. The first year membership fee depends on the month of joining the Wireless Power Consortium:
