DCAT’s unique membership model integrates both innovator and generic drug manufacturers and suppliers of ingredients, development and manufacturing services, and related technologies. As a not-for-profit, member-supported, global business development association, DCAT offers global corporations and their employees access to numerous membership benefits.
When your company supports the DCAT organization through annual membership dues, you’ll become one of 500+ industry companies to join our collegial community!
DCAT membership is corporate with benefits extending to your company’s employees. When completing the membership application, it is important to list those employees who are predominantly involved in management, sales & marketing and sourcing/procurement as contacts. DCAT’s programs and activities are more specifically geared to these roles within your organization.
DCAT has specific guidelines about who we recognize as a member company. Please be aware that when applying, the company name on the application, and source of dues payment, will be considered the Registered Member Company.
A Registered Member Company is the entity that has paid the annual dues directly, has voting rights in the association, and is interested in brand-specific benefits, such as sponsorships, participation in the Member Company Announcement Forum, space in DCAT Week official business meeting suite blocks, annual dinner tables, or branding opportunities. These benefits only exist for a Registered Member Company and can only be provided using the company name contacts. These benefits are not transferable to divisions and/or wholly-owned entities OR, to the parent company if the Registered Member Company is a division and/or wholly-owned subsidiary.
In order to provide members with the utmost flexibility, we allow your company to determine which type of membership benefits allow you the best exposure with potential customers, clients and business partners while ensuring brand identity and efficiency. Therefore, Registered Membership can be established at several levels allowing each corporate entity to promote their brand within the DCAT organization. Registered Membership can be at the:
If a Registered Member Company is a parent company with affiliates (divisions and/or wholly-owned subsidiaries), employees of those affiliates are entitled to receive Affiliated Company Employee Benefits. With Affiliated Company Employee Benefits, they can participate in DCAT organizational activities, receive discounted rates for programs, and utilize DCAT Connect. However, the affiliate company will not receive corporate benefits such as sponsorships, participation in the Member Company Announcement Forum, space in DCAT Week official business meeting suite blocks, annual dinner tables, branding opportunities, or others benefits as determined by the DCAT organization.
Companies requesting Affiliated Company Employee Benefits must have the official delegate from the Registered Member Company complete and submit the Affiliated Company Employee Benefits Form before recognition and benefits (such as discounts) can be given to affiliate employees.
Registered Member Companies that are a division and/or wholly-owned subsidiary of a parent company, cannot request Affiliated Company Employee Benefits for employees of the parent company, any divisions, subsidiaries or sister-related entities within the parent company.
