ASSIST: Alliance for Solid-State Illumination Systems and Technologies
ASSIST Sponsorship Links:
ASSIST’s sponsorship base consists of major LED component, lighting, and controls manufacturers, large-scale purchasers of LED lighting systems, government agencies, and public benefit administration organizations. These entities sponsor ASSIST because they are committed to seeing LED technology gain a strong foothold as an energy-efficient alternative to traditional lighting technologies.
The Operating Plan: Scope of Work and Organization
Working with the LRC project team, liaisons from each ASSIST member company help to identify activities and allocate funds for the ASSIST program. The member liaisons teleconference or meet several times per year. At the ASSIST Annual Meeting, project priorities for the year are determined. The ASSIST project team at the LRC subsequently prepares a work plan and budget for each of the projects designated by the ASSIST members. At the following meetings, progress reports are given by LRC staff on the projects and activities selected by ASSIST.
ASSIST members pay $30,000 annually ($15,000 annually for LRC Partners), or $75,000 for a 3-year membership . Each member designates a liaison to work with the ASSIST program and attend meetings. Each member company has one vote. The ASSIST program may appoint additional non-voting members on an annual basis.
