Membership Details

Purpose of Membership

With an ASUG Company membership, all individuals within the organization have access to member benefits for a 12-month term. All individuals must register with their company email to gain access to ASUG.com.

Through chapters and special interest groups (SIGs), year-round online educational programming, hands-on training, face-to-face events, and multiple channels of influence, we connect our members to the people and information they need to keep their careers and companies moving forward.

Our mission is to facilitate education and connections in the SAP ecosystem and to continually expand our community, bound together by real experience, to educate, influence, and enable business results and achieve real competitive advantage for all our members.

Independent Consultant Membership

This membership is available only to individuals who are not currently employed by a customer or partner company. Membership is only available to the individual by creating an active ASUG profile.

Access with this membership includes the opportunity to participate in both face-to-face and virtual events. However, this membership does not include sponsorship or involvement in the Executive Exchange program. This membership also provides the opportunity to partake in ASUG Talent Hub, where one can submit their resume to potentially be included in the interview process for contingent-based job openings at SAP customer companies.

ASUG will allow up to two independent consultants under an Independent Consultant Limited 2 membership, and three independent consultants under a Limited 3 membership.

University Alliance

University Alliance membership is available to any university that teaches SAP in the curriculum. This membership is complimentary. However, if the university is also an SAP customer, a paid membership is required.

User Groups

Only SAP customers may join under a User Group membership. However, any customer that has a presence in North America would be required to obtain paid ASUG membership.

Net-New SAP Customers

All net-new SAP customers are eligible for a six-month complimentary membership. For ASUG membership, net-new is a customer that is brand new to SAP and has never had any SAP products installed earlier than 12 months from the date of application and has never been a member of ASUG. The six-month trial should be initiated prior to go-live or within the company’s first six months to ensure the complimentary period is being used during its first year as an SAP customer, as a way to help it in the very early stages of its SAP journey.

Subsidiary and Parent Companies

As of January 2018, ASUG does not permit sister and/or parent companies to join under one membership when the additional company operates as a wholly-owned, independent subsidiary of the parent or sister company. Any individual company that has any one of the following attributes listed below, separate from the parent company, will be required to possess individual membership:
