Every ETG member is invited to contribute to the advancement of the EtherCAT Technology by active participation in the various technical Working Groups and Task Forces, which report to the Technical Committee (TC), The TC typically meets twice a year near Frankfurt International Airport, Germany, in order to ensure convenient access also from abroad. Committee participation, however, is not the only way of contributing to the specifications: members may also submit Technology Modification Requests directly to the TC chairperson for evaluation by the Technical Advisory Board (TAB). The TAB reviews and releases the EtherCAT specifications, selects and approves the Conformance Test Tool and releases new versions of the Tool. The Technical Advisory Board also acts as arbitration body in case of appeals against conformance verdicts.

Global EtherCAT promotion activities are coordinated by the Marketing Committee. The ETG Regional Committee Japan organizes and funds EtherCAT promotional and support activities in Japan. The ETG membership assembly decides upon the ETG bylaws and elects the Board of Directors. This membership assembly - typically held in conjunction with the SPS/IPC/Drives trade show (Nuremberg, Germany) - is not the only event where members receive reports about the ETG activities and provide corresponding feedback: at regional member meetings (e.g. in Japan and Korea) members that cannot attend the meetings in Germany are updated as well.
