Are you a candidate for Individual Membership?

✔ I do RISC-V related work, but my organization does not.

✔ My RISC-V related work is separate from my day-job.

✔ I’d like to contribute to RISC-V technologies via one of the RISC-V Committees, Work Groups, or Special Interest Groups, but my organization is not a member.

My organization is a member, what do I do now?

If you are already an employee of a member organization, you do not need an individual membership to participate. 

Email us with a request to be added to the member portal.
