Student Member Initiative 2018

Do you want your state to be a participating state in the Student Membership Initiative 2018?

Following is information about the program, and instructions for participating.

Know the program basics

New student members pay only $5. Both states and the national office subsidize each membership in the amount of $15.

States must opt in to the program for students in their state to participate, even if they participated last year. (Click here to check the list of participating states. )

The program runs from July 15, 2018, through June 30, 2019.

Opt in to the program

To opt-into the initiative for your students, the state president must complete the Google form (click here) indicating that they understand the state financial commitment to the program.

Understand the new process

Tell students in your state that when they join online as a student, and select your state as their member state, they will be able to select the special price of $5.

Once students submit their membership form online and pay their $5 dues, their student membership will be activated.

As those memberships are received, the national office will periodically invoice state treasurers for the $15 state portion of the cost.

Pay the $15/membership when invoiced by the National Office
