Become an Alliance Partner
The DMTF values working with affiliated industry organizations, and the Alliance Partner membership is a way for the DMTF to formalize synergistic relationships with other standards groups. Strictly for not-for-profit organizations in the standards arena, the Alliance Partner membership level is offered at no charge. Alliance Partner members may participate in DMTF working groups as a non-voting member, and in the DMTF Marketing Committee, Technical Committee and the appropriate DMTF Working Groups as a non-voting member. Alliance Partner members also have access to the DMTF members-only Web site and member email lists. This membership category is intended to clarify roles and provide mutual benefit to the organizations and the DMTF. Alliance Partner membership is an important way the DMTF is helping unify management initiatives and develop more solid partnerships.
