ANSI Membership Forums

The ANSI Federation comprises four broadly defined constituencies: company members, organizational members, government members, and consumer interests. The Company Member Forum, Government Member Forum, and Organizational Member Forum have as their charge to:

  • Provide a forum for discussion and networking by a defined interest category;
  • Provide a mechanism for “early warning” of relevant trends;
  • Address issues of interest primarily to their membership and galvanize implementation of their constituent level;
  • Identify broader-based issues to be addressed by an identified governance body;
  • Assume an active role in ANSI membership recruitment and retention;
  • Serve as the one place within ANSI where participants can represent their own organization’s interests.

The Consumer Interest Forum consists of knowledgeable representatives from consumer organizations, producers, retailers, distributors, industry councils, and government. The Consumer Interest Forum seeks to promote the education of consumers regarding the activities of ANSI and the standards development community, and the involvement of consumers in these areas. Membership in ANSI is not required to participate on the CIF.

All ANSI members are automatically registered in the appropriate member forum.
