This membership is established to promote and financially support the Association's projects and to be appropriately recognized for that support. They may also work together to identify and promote projects of mutual interest and value. A supporting member has no voting rights, but each is encouraged to appoint a representative to attend activities, meetings, etc., and to act as liaison with the Association.
