Note: Any OASIS member is free to join a Committee affiliated with EI; you do not have to be employed by an EI Member Section Supporting Entity to do so.
Cost of membership
OASIS offers a wide range of membership options and dues designed to ensure that all those affected by open standards have a voice in their creation. It costs OASIS members nothing extra to join and participate in EI.
Organizations and individuals may also advance the work of OASIS EI by underwriting specific activities. Donors may contribute any amount. Donations may be used for specific purposes, such as to defer meeting expenses, produce educational materials, hire program managers, etc. or to support general activities of the Member Section. An OASIS member who donates 5,500 USD or more annually (in addition to their OASIS Foundational or Sponsor-level dues) may have their organization's logo linked from every page of the Member Section's web site. See the Member Section Supporters program description for more details.
