Membership provides many benefits to any person or group who would like to support the FOSS/Open Tech community. FOSSASIA individual members can vote for the FOSSASIA advisory board individual member seats and even run themselves. In addition individual members can participate directly in the growth of Open Technologies by creating, joining and incubating projects. These projects serve as resources for the entire open source community. Furthermore FOSSASIA provides grants to core members and project leaders to attend conferences and present projects.
A few conditions apply:
* Running in election: Individual members are eligible to run for individual members seats on the advisory board. Running in an election requires a membership payment of one year minimum.
