Benefits of Membership
Membership is valid from January to December annually.
- Renewals go out in January of each year. Members who are not paid by March 1, will be removed from the Member list. Members who require financial reprieve or additional time, please be in touch.
Membership fees apply organization-wide (i.e. all employees/staff are members) so the more actively participating team members you have, the better the value!
New Members first year is pro-rated (please select the invoice option on the member registration form and we will adjust your fees based on your start date).
- Our organizational membership model allows as many people in one organization to be members under that membership — ensuring we reach every level of and area of an organization. It adds a very unique breadth and depth of experiences and knowledge to all of our forums.
- Historically, the Regional District fees were set to help supplement our ability to charge lower prices for the smaller local governments and non-profits in their districts to able to participate. This has worked well for years and we have maintained high participation from within each member district to date. However, we recognize that not every Regional District has a large team to ensure that same value is found, so in 2022 we have introduced special pricing for those RDs. Interested in learning more?
