Membership FAQs

Why can’t I join as an individual?

It got confusing. We primarily serve startups and companies, and there were different benefits. Individuals can still access all the same benefits as before simply by subscribing to our monthly newsletter or following us on social.

If you want invitations to ‘members only’ events, weekly updates etc. because you are working in robotics company (or consulting) then you need to join as a company member. Even if you’re a visiting company for only a short time – see Global Partner, Consultant or Startup Levels.

Which email address should I put for my company?

Provide an administrative or CEO email. This is primarily for receipts AND important invitations. You can sign up additional company members for our newsletter by using the “Join mailing list" button.

I’ve already joined the mail list? Why become a member?

Support SVR and enjoy additional benefits. We are continuing to improve our membership benefits.

How can I change my membership details?

We are improving the process and soon will offer access to a member profile section.

Will I receive a membership number? 

You’ll be sent details about access to members section, member profiles and member numbers as we finish those membership sections on the website.

What about an invoice or receipt?

Everyone will be sent a receipt of payment by the end of month. Select the ‘send me an invoice’ option if you need an invoice too. This may take a day or two to be emailed to you.

What are my payment options?

You can pay online via paypal, either directly from the membership form or from your invoice. You can also mail us a check (select send me an invoice option).

What if the website broke or my payment didn’t go through and now I can’t reregister?

Try again but select “renewing or returning".

What is an investor, sponsor or affiliate member?

If you are interested in robotics, particularly investment opportunities, or if you manufacture components or provide services for robotics companies. We’d like to discuss tailoring benefits to fit with you.

What is a STEM member?

Are you a non-profit? Or is your business primarily educational?
