Membership Criteria

1. Full Members

Full members hold the privilege of voting on all organizational and financial matters, embodying a pivotal role in steering GENA’s direction. Representatives of Full Members are eligible to apply for esteemed positions within the Executive Committee and can take on leadership roles in Working Groups.

2. Associate Members (Non-voting)

Associate Members encompass organizations that either do not meet the criteria for Full Membership or choose not to assume such membership status despite eligibility. This category includes a diverse array of entities such as IT and business solution providers, network operators, and other significant contributors to the evolution of e-invoicing and e-business services, including relevant associations.

3. Chapter Members (with voting rights at Chapter level)

Chapter Members are organizations, whether already member of GENA or not, that express a keen interest in participating in local or regional Chapters to engage in discussions pertinent to localized or regional topics. 

Chapter Members can participate in relevant open meetings and working groups of the Chapter but Chapter Membership does not give access to the regular activities of the GENA association.
