Principal members are entitled to full rights within the organization. They can lead working groups, projects, vote on documents, and be voted to the board.
Supporting members have observation rights. They can join all calls and attend all meetings but they cannot participate like Principal members.
Many of our larger member companies have acquired, or merged with, other video companies: technology companies, rights holders, etc. As part of our by-laws, member companies may bring as many people to participate as they wish including those from subsidiary, parent, or majority-owned brands.
Grant recipients have the rights of a principal member for 1 year. Their membership in the grant program is reviewed annually by the board.
