Second, we operate an Associate Membership scheme for companies who support our objectives and wold like to provide us with funding, but with no say in our aims and objectives. Further details of our Associate Membership scheme can be found here. Third, our workstreams require project funding from participating institutions, such as the Contracts Working Group  and our dispute resolution workstream.
