New Member Fee Guide for 2020

We are pleased to announce and distribute our new Member Fee Guide.  The new fee structure takes effect on January 1, 2020.  

The Directors of the DNP Users Group (DNP-UG) want to thank you for your continued and vital support.  It is no exaggeration to say that we could not function without it.  Since our last announcement in August we have made good progress on a number of important initatives including:

  • Our revamped Conformance Test Review (CTR) program including new staff, an updated process and new certificate template. 
  • Cyber security - including Secure Authentication Version 6 (SAv6) and a new Authorization Management Protocol (AMP).
  • Website updates which are now in progress
  • New Master Station Test Procedures 
  • New Device Profile Guide
  • Overall update to the IEEE Std 1815 document

More detail on the above work items is included in a pending Member Update.

Although the DNP Users Group (DNP-UG) has continued to support many key initiatives, in 2018 the leadership concluded that our organizational structure of 100% volunteers was not sustainable. At the annual meeting in February 2019 a proposal to change the structure of the UG was approved by the members. We then entered a process of defining a new fee structure which was open and transparent with lots of opportunity for input from our members. The proposed fees were established to reflect the value brought by the DNP-UG when compared with similar industry bodies. This was followed by a vote by all members on a new fee structure concluding in July 2019. The vote was approved with good participation and by a wide margin.

In order for us to continue as a sustainable organization and progress in a timely manner on the many initiatives we have underway (with more planned), we need the continued support of you and/or your company at the new fee levels.

Thank you in advance for your on-going membership.
