Introduction of Division-based Flat Member Fee (from Fiscal Year 2016)

 First current 18 WGs are categorized into five(5) technical Division (See picture below). If a member is interested in only one(1) WG in the Division, only one(1) unit is required for participation in the WG. If a member is interested in two(2) or more WG(s) in the Division, only two(2) units is required for participation in ANY WG(s) under the Division. The member participating in the Division can join as many WGs under this Division as interested.

 Under this Member Fee system, the members who already participated in the Division are able to join the newly created WG (s) in the Division without any Member Fee increase, which is expected to support the member’s prompt and flexible participation in emerging standard topic(s).
