How to take advantage

Getting value from STAC doesn't have to cost a thing. You and your firm can benefit right away. But paid memberships in the STAC Benchmark Council offer many additional benefits. The options are described below.

Anyone:

Join the STAC mailing list to hear about new research, events, and other news. Create an account to access public STAC Reports and other materials. No charge. To start, just enter your email address at the bottom of this page.

Financial institutions:

If you work for a financial organization that is not already a STAC member and you would like to attend key STAC events and access one sample item of non-public information from the STAC Vault, please set your firm up with a free Observer Membership.

If you would like people at your firm to obtain non-public test results, access detailed configuration info for all systems tested, use STAC Test Harness software internally, drive requirements for testing programs, or influence benchmark specifications, please contact us to request a Contributing or Recipient membership agreement.
