Workshop Membership


A workshop will be held from 10.00 to 17.00 on 18 June 2012 at ITU Headquarters in Geneva, to review the status of Sector Membership and potential reforms.


This workshop will take place during a week of various Council Working Group meetings. The outcomes will provide ideas and support the development of recommendations that can be considered by Council 2012.




The 2010 Plenipotentiary Conference (PP-10) asked Council to review the present approach to Sector Membership, including the possibility of changes in areas such as the fee structure and membership categories, with a view to enhancing the benefits for Sector Members and Associates. PP-10 also established a new category of participation in ITU for Academia and asked Council to consider further refinements of this new category. In addition, PP-10 revised fee payment provisions and approved new reduced membership fees for organizations from countries with low incomes to participate in ITU-R and ITU-T activities.


The Council meeting of 2011 asked the Council Working Group on Human and Financial Resources (CWG-HR/FIN) to consider these issues further and report back. This workshop is being organized following a recommendation of the last CWG-HR/FIN to reach out to the membership to gather ideas and proposals.




The workshop will be chaired by the Chairman of the Council Working Group on Human and Financial Resources, Mr Bruce Gracie, Canada.




This workshop is open to all Member States, Sector Members and Associates. The proceedings will be available via webcast. Remote participation will also be available.

Registration for onsite and online participation can be done at




Members are encouraged to submit written contributions and participate in this workshop.
