● Each company membership includes 10 seats, designated company employees who can participate in association governance and programs.

● TechCA strictly complies with all antitrust laws. All TechCA members and staff will be sensitive to the unique legal issues involving trade associations and accordingly, will take all measures necessary to comply with U.S. antitrust laws. Antitrust laws prohibit concerted activities or agreements between competitors in restraint of trade. By their nature, associations bring competitors together to discuss items of importance to the industry and otherwise facilitate communications and the exchange of information among competitors. Accordingly, the leaders and members of an association must be particularly attuned to the potential for situations/discussions/information exchanges that could give rise to antitrust allegations and agree to avoid discussions including, but not limited to, fees, rates, prices, profits, market allocations or supplier boycotts in any TechCA events or activities.
