At its August 2018 meeting, NCRA’s Board of Directors voted to put forward a proposal to raise membership dues, which members can vote on at the Annual Business Meeting. The Board noted a dues increase is critical to maintain and grow the services provided to NCRA members and to continue the Association’s efforts to advance and advocate for the professions.
The Board of Directors recommended that reporter dues be raised to $300 for Registered and Participating members and to $179 for Associate members. Student dues will be raised to $55. (The chart below shows the proposed changes for additional groups.) Members who opted to become Lifetime retired members before Dec. 31, 2017, and those who were granted honorary status will continue to pay no dues.
The proposed amounts take into account the various parameters put in place on dues for certain membership categories by the Constitution & Bylaws. Dues for NCRA membership last increased in 2016.
To go into effect for the 2020 year, the Board’s recommendation must be approved by a majority of the voting members present at the NCRA Annual Business Meeting that will be held in conjunction with the 2019 NCRA Convention & Expo in Denver, Colo., Aug. 15-18.
