Member Structure

There are three categories of membership to allow members to engage and participate at every stage of a company’s evolution.

Advocacy Trust: The highest tier of memberships falls in the new “Advocacy Trust.” These are members who are highly engaged in both public policy strategy and tactics and eligible for governance positions. The Advocacy Trust will define the future ITS markets and the ecosystem in which they operate. Membership Commitments for public sector organization are $10,000 and begin at $50,000 for private sector companies.

Professional Trust: The intermediate “Professional Trust” membership offers a sliding scale in which dues range from $3,000 to $30,000 depending on each company’s gross U.S. revenues.

Innovation Trust: The “Innovation Trust”, is an entry-level membership for start-ups and other small companies with less than $1 million in gross U.S. revenues. This membership allows engagement from up-and- coming innovators, who we hope will graduate to higher levels of membership as their businesses grow.
