CCA Membership Types

There are three basic categories to which you may belong as a member of CCA. The first category is called Voting Member. In order to qualify as a Carrier / Voting Member, the applicant must be the operator of a CMRS license providing “two-way” wireless communications service and, together with all its affiliates, not have more than 80 million subscribers at the time original application is submitted.

The Affiliate Member category is comprised of those companies who operate or own an interest in a CMRS license but do not qualify as a Voting Member. This may be because they exceed the subscriber limit in their markets or because they are a limited partner.

The Associate Member category includes companies that provide goods or services to the wireless telecommunications industry serving the rural and small metropolitan areas of the United States. They do not qualify as either a Voting Member or an Affiliate Member. Both Affiliate and Associate Members enjoy all benefits entitled Members except they shall not have a vote or hold an elective office in the association.

Carrier/Voting Member

In order to qualify as a Voting Member, a company must:

  1. Be an FCC spectrum licensee, or an FCC-approved lessee of spectrum, or a high bidder for a license at the close of any FCC spectrum auction, providing or with plans to provide a two-way wireless service; and
  2. Together with all “affiliates”, not have more than 80 million subscribers at the time of original application to become a Voting Member (“affiliates” are defined as all entities controlling, controlled by or under common control with the applicant).

Voting Member participation in CCA must comply with the association’s Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws, and with rules and regulations as adopted from time to time by the Board of Directors.
