Every member has at least one vote. The promotion contribution is determined by the general assembly, the Association of Sponsors. The current contribution can be found in the application for admission.
The annual contribution for network operators is oriented towards the respective weighted network lengths. Manufacturers, service providers, scientific institutions, and public authorities pay a contribution based on the voting rights acquired. Companies that pay a higher annual contribution voluntarily receive additional voting rights. A sponsor can receive a maximum of 10 percent of the voting rights.
The members of the Association of Sponsors determine the budget annually and elect representatives of the various specialist circles into the FNN Forum. Membership at FNN is independent of any other membership in the VDE e.V.
