The budget for 2017 was accepted unanimously. Most of the membership fee is spent for developing CANopen and CAN FD specifications as well as to support the international standardization. Another important part of the nonprofit association’s income is used for promoting activities including stands at EmbeddedWorld in Nuremberg, SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, Interlift in Augsburg, and IAS in Shanghai. Of course, a part of the membership fee is used for the free-of-charge technical “hotline” (service(at)can-cia.org) answering technical questions.
