Join a Technical Committee

Home > Join a Technical Committee

New Format Members of PTI technical committees are essential to the development of PTI.  Two levels of committee membership are available based on experience and availability to commit to committee activities. 

Voting members are selected because of their personal knowledge and expertise related to the committee's mission.  PTI membership is required for all voting members.  Members must vote on all committee letter ballots and have the privilege of the floor at all meetings.  Members are required to actively participate in committee work through contributions of technical information, prompt return of committee ballots and reply to correspondence, participation in web meetings, and attendance in at least one of the committee meetings each year.

Associate members are selected because of their personal knowledge and expertise related to the committee's mission.  PTI membership is required for associate membership, unless waived by TAB.  Associate members are required to contribute to the work of the committee by returning committee ballots, expressing negative viewpoints (with reasons), and replying to correspondence.  These ballots and negative viewpoints are not counted in the final ballot tally and do not affect the outcome of a ballot item, but must be distributed to the committee for consideration.  Associate members are encouraged to attend meetings.  They have the privilege of the floor, but do not vote.  A person applying for voting membership may be appointed as an associate member for a variety of reasons, including maintaining a balance of interests within the committee or limiting membership during the balloting of a committee document.

Click here for a membership application.  Committee membership applications must be approved by the committee chair and by the Technical Advisory Board (TAB).  Staff will check for other requirements such as balance of interest on committees and PTI membership requirements.

This process may take some time and we will let you know when the membership decision is made.
