Vendor Membership

Benefits of Membership

In order to be a WISPA Vendor Member, you must be a distributor, supplier or manufacturer of goods and services provided to WISPs.   Being a Vendor Member is a great way to stay top of mind with WISPA’s Principal Members.  Other benefits include:

  • Email Blasts: Vendors may send 4 free eblasts per year to the WISPA advertisements list of 6500+.

  • Show Discounts: Discounts on booths are available to WISPA vendor members. If your company chooses not to exhibit, you and your employees may still take advantage of discounted full conference passes.

  • Forums: WISPA operates a number of email-forum lists. As a vendor member, you and your employees may subscribe to and participate in any of them. The Members Forums are an invaluable way to become acquainted with WISPA Principal Members, their businesses, and business needs. Of the thousands of emails posted monthly, the vast majority are technical or business related discussions and typically relate to industry products or services.

  • Leadership & Committee Participation: Help shape the future of our industry and association by joining a committee or running for the Board of Directors.

  • Advocacy: In addition to retaining a Washington, D.C. based law firm and lobbying team, WISPA’s Board members (Principal and Vendor Members) are enlisted for regular trips to our nation’s capital to appear before members of the U.S. House, Senate, and FCC officials.

  • Healthcare Choices: Access to AHPA/WISPA-sponsored health insurance plans.

  • Buyers Club: Access to Abenity buyers discount club.
