How can I join as Small Business?

'Small Business membership is a variant of associate membership with a reduced membership fee. 

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: fill in Annex C (associate membership for a small business), and have it signed by someone authorized to sign on behalf of your company. Here is the form:

Annex C - application form for a small business (less than 10,000,000 USD annual revenues)

中国公司请使用中国公司的申请表 Annex C - application form for a small Chinese company

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

The Wireless Power Consortium
c/o IEEE-ISTO, attn. Rosalinda F. Saravia
445 Hoes Lane
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 one year membership fee. Please pay the invoice on time, otherwise your membership benefits will be suspended.
