Participation of interested parties and stakeholders is critical to the NETA Standards development program. NETA works to assure the process followed during standards development activities is fair, open, and balanced among interests represented by the standards. 

Ballot Pool Participation

NETA Standards also have input from a consensus body (ballot pool) established at the beginning of each revision cycle. Ballot pool participation is governed by the NETA Standards Review Council, and is open to any materially affected party willing to participate in the process of reviewing the draft document and returning ballots in accordance with NETA Operating Principles and Procedures. Applications are accepted at any time, and are considered based upon application and curriculum vitae information submitted, space available, and interest category. NETA works to assure that there is balance among interest group categories: producers, users, and general interest.

To be considered for future ballot pool membership, please complete and submit a Ballot Pool Application along with a copy of your resume or CV to the NETA office at
