SVTC membership structure
In Sept. 2007 we unveiled a new membership structure and our membership has been growing since then. We did away with the 'number of employees' categories and now offer categories that are for individuals and companies that are tiered by the benefits we deliver. It's a scalable structure that enables companies, individuals, organizations of any type -and students- to choose a category that suits them best. Besides categories for students and individuals, there are three levels of organizational memberships (level 1, 2, 3). Each level delivers a different set of benefits and members choose their levels according to what suits them.
Membership defined by level of benefits, not number of employees.
All members: Electronic newsletter, priority invitations and reminders, invitation to participate on SVTC committees, use of the SVTC membership directory listing to their advantage (150 words). Post open jobs as well as publicity in newsletter and website. Any member may buy into a higher category at any time to get the higher benefits. Active participation by each member is what makes the difference for all.
