The Unicode Consortium is announcing changes to membership fees and
categories. These changes include both the addition of a new membership
category as well as a periodic adjustment of membership fees for inflation.
These fee changes put the Consortium in a stronger position to continue its
mission to enable people around the world to use computers in any language by
providing freely-available specifications and data. Note also that a new
category for Supporting, non-profit has been created. All other existing
non-profit and individual memberships will have no change.
As of June 1, 2019,
the annual membership fee will change as described in the following table:
|Membership Levels||Current Fee||New Fee|
Existing members may renew their membership early at the current fee if
they renew by May 31, 2019.
The Consortium continues to offer a multi-year discount option for all membership levels, when renewal fees are paid in advance:
- 10 years, 20% discount
- 5 years, 10% discount
- 3 years, 6% discount
The Consortium also offers lifetime memberships to individual members. For
further information please contact the Unicode office.
