The National Spectrum Consortium (NSC) does not have specific guidance with regard to how a parent organization and its associated affiliates must join the Consortium. It is left up to the organization to determine how best to join the NSC. The NSC membership listing will specify multiple affiliates, should the parent organization allow multiple affiliates to join.
Regardless of the number of affiliates, an NSC Member Organization with one or more affiliates participating in the NSC is considered to be one (1) NSC Member Organization for the purposes of voting, committee and subcommittee representation. It is left up to the parent organization to determine how NSC representation will occur.
Affiliate means, with respect to a specified Member that is a signatory to the NSC Articles of Collaboration, any corporation, company, partnership, joint venture and/or firm which now or hereafter controls, is controlled by or is under common control of such specified Member. For purposes of this definition, “control” shall mean (i) in the case of corporate entities, direct or indirect ownership of at least 50% of the stock or shares entitled to vote for the election of directors; and (ii) in the case of non-corporate entities, direct or indirect ownership of at least 50% of the equity interest with the power to direct the management and policies of such non-corporate entities.
