About the Getting Started category

Interested in becoming a member of the Coalition for Independent Tech Research & joining our community space? Here’s our membership process:

Membership Process

Step 1: Fill out this online form. It asks about your profile whether you will join the Coalition as an individual or as an organization and what activities you will participate in and make use of as a member. The form also asks you to declare potential conflicts of interest.

Step 2: The Coalition organizing team will review your application and either notify you of our decision, or we may ask some follow-up questions. We aim to complete these reviews within 2-4 weeks. If you have not heard back from us after 4 weeks, please reach out to Program Coordinator Elizabeth (Bit) Meehan (bit.coalition@gmail.com).

Step 3: If your application is approved, we will ask that you—if joining as an individual—or your designated organizational representative review and agree to our Code of Conduct.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to Program Coordinator Elizabeth (Bit) Meehan (bit.coalition@gmail.com).
