What is the difference between membership classes?

Principal Membership is for companies that are willing to commit time and resources to realize the world of HAPS Alliance. Principal Members are eligible for leadership positions, including an Executive Board seat and all working group leadership positions.

General membership is for companies that are interested in the development and use of HAPS. With General Membership, a company is able to vote in all working groups.

What happens after I fill out and submit the Membership Application?

Your application will be reviewed by the HAPS Alliance membership team for completeness within three business days. If your application is complete, it will be sent to the Executive Board for approval.  The approval period is one week.  If there are any questions or further review required, you will be notified and kept informed of the status.

Membership Dues

What are the membership fees?

Membership fees are set by the HAPS Alliance Executive Board. Currently HAPS Alliance offers two classes of membership which companies can self-select based on their intended involvement in the HAPS Alliance. The annual Principal Membership fee is $25,000 USD; the annual General Membership fee is $10,000.

How long is the membership term?

Membership is active for 1 (one) year from the date your initial membership dues are received by HAPS Alliance. If an organization pays on May 31, 2020, their membership will be active for one year until May 30, 2021, at which point their membership will be eligible for renewal.

What payment methods are accepted?

HAPS Alliance can accept payment by check or wire transfer. All necessary details to process payment are included on your invoice.

Are the membership dues inclusive of taxes and fees?

In the event any governmental authority imposes any sales, use or excise tax, duty, custom, levy, fee, or any other tax, charge or fee of any nature related to the payment of the membership fees (collectively, the “Tax”), member shall be responsible to pay the Tax in full to ensure HAPS Alliance collects the entire amount of its membership fees.
