Membership FAQ’s

Organizations and individuals should take a good look at the benefits of membership and a good look at our calendar. If there are a lot of classes you and other staff, volunteers, and board members would like to take and resources you’d like to take advantage of, then membership might be right for you. We want membership to be a benefit to you. We have created a variety of options, as we know that organizations in the sector have a wide variance in staff and budget, but you’ll have to do the math on your end and decide if membership is right for you. If you still aren’t sure, feel free to contact us at for further discussion.
Memberships are for one year, starting on the day of purchase.
Individual members receive benefits only for themselves. Silver, Gold, and Platinum member benefits go to all staff, board, and volunteers.
