With a newly updated membership structure, the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA) says it is making it easier and more affordable to join the national trade association.
The new structure introduces a basic membership for $750 per year and a premium membership for $4,500 per year.
“By expanding our offerings, we can bring more solar companies into the SEIA fold, ultimately strengthening our voice in Washington, D.C., and in state capitals across the country,” says Abigail Ross Hopper, SEIA’s president and CEO. “This is a significant shift in strategy for SEIA that will not only help us boost our influence but also make us work more democratically, creating opportunity for companies of all kinds to engage in their own advocacy.”
Additionally, SEIA is introducing a new online form to make it quicker and easier to join. The “Join SEIA” landing page has also been updated with information to make it more streamlined and easier to access.
These updates are effective immediately for new members. For current members, the new membership structure will take effect upon their 2019 renewal date.
This change also includes new membership referral and ambassador programs, which allow SEIA members to earn discounts on their dues, event tickets, sponsorship opportunities and more by recruiting new companies to join SEIA.
