Wearable Robotics Association Reorganizing as 501(c)6 in 2021
The Wearable Robotics Association Board of Directors is pleased to announce that in January 2021, we began the process to reorganize as a 501(c)6 in the Commonwealth of Virginia. As part of this
reorganization, the Board has decided to open three (3) additional seats on the Board to members of
the Association. These seats are designed to provide additional inputs at the Board level for the
strategic direction of the Association. These seats will be open to members representing each of these three areas: Medical/Rehabilitation use, Industrial use, and Standards/Insurance requirements for
exoskeletons. These board seats will be up for election each year at the annual meeting. Future eBlasts will detail the process for nominating candidates for the open Board seats.
Our new purpose statement: The Wearable Robotics Trade Association is dedicated to educating and
advancing the wearable robotics and wearable technology industries.
What do these changes mean for members?
1. Increased access to assist in influencing the strategic direction of your association.
2. Increased focus on educational opportunities for students, members, industry and federal
3. Tax deductibility of sponsorship dollars.
4. Increased ability of the Association to partner with public universities.
5. Increased ability of the Association to partner with federal entities.
We look forward to continuing to work with all of our members and a fantastic community of
businesses, universities, and government agencies similarly aligned with our goal to improve the human
condition through the application of these wearable technologies!
