Annual membership fees are based on a tiered membership model.
Tier membership provides for a minimum and maximum number of individuals at the same organization to receive NACE member benefits for one fee. (At colleges and universities, the IPEDS number is used to determine if individuals are at "the same organization." )
This model emphasizes delivering benefits to everyone who needs them, with less paperwork and hassle. Everyone gets the same benefits.
One person is designated as the key contact for the membership; this person initiates and manages the membership; he or she designates who, in addition to him- or herself, receives member benefits, adds individuals to any open spots in the tier, and receives the renewal notice on behalf of all.
Everyone in the tier is a member and receives the same benefits: Each person designated to receive member benefits receives an individual login and password; these may not be shared.
Yes. Because each membership must have a key contact, it may not be feasible for your organization to have just one membership.
For example, the College of Business career center and the College of Liberal Arts career center may each maintain their own membership tier: Each has a key contact who identifies the benefit recipients and handles the renewal.
No, you cannot prorate the fee. Each tier is covered by a flat fee. However, you can designate another individual to receive membership benefits.
You can reassign membership benefits, if an individual in your membership tier leaves or takes on a different job function. However, you may not reassign benefits from one existing staff member to another.
Yes. There are two ways to do this.
Membership cancellations received within 7 days of joining/renewing may be eligible to receive a full refund less $50 service fee.
Cancellations received after the stated deadline will not be eligible for a refund.
