Open Project Sponsorship

Everyone is welcome to make technical contributions to Open Projects–there are no dues or fees required. Instead, each Open Project is funded by annual sponsorship dues from the stakeholder organizations committed to its success.

Annual Open Project Sponsor Dues
General Sponsor Premier Sponsor
Your dues fund core services for your Open Project A portion of your dues may be designated to fund supplemental services for your Open Project
2,000+ employees at your organization $26,500 $60,000
500-1,999 employees $16,000
100-499 employees $10,600
10-99 employees $5,300
Fewer than 10 employees $2,200
Nonprofit, university, local government agency, or national government agency from a developing economy $1,100

All Open Project sponsors receive full OASIS membership rights, including the ability to serve and vote on the OASIS Board of Directors and the ability to vote on candidate OASIS Standards.

Dues from both Premier and General Sponsors fund the core services provided for each Open Project. Premier Sponsors may also allocate a portion of their dues for supplemental services their project may need. A comparison of the Premier and General Sponsor levels is detailed on the Benefits matrix.

To sponsor an Open Project, download and submit the Membership Agreement. We’ll send you a countersigned copy with instructions for getting involved. To hold a voting seat on the Project’s Governing Board, you’ll also need to sign an e-CLA, but you can do that after joining. Contact OASIS if you have questions or need help with this process.

Technical Committee Membership

TC membership gives your organization the ability to participate in any OASIS Technical Committee. In fact, there are no limits to the number of representatives you can have or the number of TCs you may be involved in.

To join, first choose the membership category that best meets your needs.

Annual TC Membership Dues

Technical participation only Technical participation + marketing benefits Technical participation + highest marketing benefits + sponsorship of your choice of events/activities
500+ employees at your organization $11,150 $22,300 $60,000
100-500 employees $10,300 $19,100

Contributor Membership

Contributor membership was designed to enable organizations (particularly small government agencies, academics, and non-profit associations) to participate fully in Committee work. Vendors are free to choose this category of membership with the understanding that no marketing or visibility benefits are included.

General Sponsor membership provides the full range of benefits that vendors (of all sizes), large user organizations, and government agencies need. The General Sponsor category combines unlimited TC participation with essential marketing and visibility benefits. General Sponsors are featured and quoted in OASIS press releases, they participate in interoperability demos, workshops, webinars, and presentations at conferences, their logos and links appear throughout the OASIS website–they support the adoption activities that grow the market for standards-compliant products.

Premier Membership

Demonstrating the highest level of commitment, Premier members are globally recognized as industry leaders and innovators. Their support is critical in enabling OASIS to fulfill its mission. Premier members receive maximum participation, visibility, and promotional benefits including sponsorship of special events and activities.

See the TC Member Benefits Matrix for a comparison of benefits.

To join, submit the TC Membership Agreement. Once we receive your signed Member Agreement, we’ll send you a counter-signed copy and instructions for joining the TC(s) you’re interested in. You can get started right away.

Personal Membership

OASIS also offers membership to individuals who are self-employed, unemployed, or employed by organizations unable to join OASIS. Individual members do not receive marketing or visibility benefits, and they are not eligible to vote on OASIS Standards or elections for the Board of Directors. Membership is held by the named person only and cannot be transferred.

Individual Membership

You may apply for a personal “Individual” membership if you:

  • are self-employed or unemployed and
  • sign the OASIS Membership Agreement on your own behalf and
  • are legally able to directly license your Intellectual Property (i.e., you haven’t assigned your IPR to an employer or other entity).

Individual dues are 400 USD/year. To apply, submit the Membership Agreement [Individual].

Individual/Associate Membership

You may apply for “Individual/Associate” membership if you:

  • are employed by an organization that is willing to sign the OASIS Membership Agreement and be bound by the Policies of OASIS and
  • are employed by an organization that has no other employees participating in OASIS TCs.

Associate dues are 1,695 USD/year.  To apply, submit the Membership Agreement [Individual/Associate].

Contact OASIS staff to discuss the category of membership that best meets your needs.
