Sponsoring an OIC Special Interest Group (ZIG) or Special Application Group (ZAG) program requires the host to provide a regular meeting room, refreshments and facilities
to enable the monthly meetings to function as a networking forum.
A Program Sponsor is required to provide those resources for 12 meetings on the understanding that if a competitor would like to sponsor a meeting at their own premises then the program sponsor will agree to this request.
This is to ensure that the OIC is recognised and maintains its position as a Neutral Ground Forum to raise awareness of Electronic Information Technology issues.
Any Participating Project member may sponsor a 12 month Education/Awareness Seminar Programme.
The fee for sponsoring a 12 month programme is: $ 10,000
Any participating member may sponsor an Education/Awareness Seminar.
