Membership structure

Decide which type of membership is right for your organization

Cybera has two types of membership, which offer different levels of commitment and different services.

Types of membership

Class A members are typically post-secondary institutions with a significant research mandate who invest in Cybera to link to Alberta’s advanced internet and research networks across Canada and around the world. These members are involved in setting the direction for Cybera as voting members at the Annual General Meeting.

Class B members members typically include post-secondary institutions without a significant research mandate, as well as K-12 school boards, and public and not-for-profit organizations. These members do not vote in Cybera’s Annual General Meeting, but have access to the same services as Class A members.
