PC/SC Workgroup Membership Overview
The Workgroup offers two Membership Levels.
- Associate Members provide the Workgroup with a broad-based fund of input and expertise.
- The group of Core Members is limited to a small number, so that it is able to function as a Board of Directors, and make informed decisions based on input from the diversity of the membership.
The most compelling reason to join the PC/SC Workgroup: common standards which meet the needs of the diversity of companies which participate in the smart card industry. For other benefits, see Membership Benefits.
All new members are approved by the Core Members, who review each Membership Application to ensure that all PC/SC members have a common purpose. The membership approval process takes two weeks. Upon approval, new members are asked to sign a member agreement. Dues may then be payed via credit card at the PC/SC website, or via invoice.
