Current dues are as follows:


Individual memberships are $40.00 per year. Half-year membership dues are $30.00 which are effective from March 1st through June 30th. 

Facility membership is also available for $75.00 per year. Facility membership entitles any number of employees from the member facility to attend any/all education programs within the education year. Half-year facility membership dues are $60.00 from 1st of March through June 30th.
