NEW MEMBER SURVEY




COVID-19 STRUGGLE & RESPONSE
With the recent outbreak of COVID-19, many organizations are impacted in various different ways. The National Guild is making efforts to help by getting an understanding of what our members are currently experiencing, to better inform our programming and member services. Please briefly describe the primary struggles your organization is facing due to COVID-19. (The information you share will not affect your dues.)

MEMBERSHIP FEE

The suggested Individual Affiliate annual membership fee is $100 ($30 for students with valid ID).  However, due the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 we are extending the option to pay what you can to Full, Education Affiliate, and Individual Members.

The Business Affiliate annual membership fee is $250.


AN UPDATE ON FEES DURING COVID-19

Dues are typically 0.075% of your annual budget (rounded to nearest $10), up to a cap of $2,500, and pay-what-you-can for organizations with budgets under $300,000. However, we understand that many organizations are losing significant revenue as a result of the coronavirus, so we are extending the option to pay what you can to all members now, regardless of which annual budget category your organization falls into.

Once you enter your organization's budget below, your due will be calculated. By ticking the box under the calculated due, you will have the option to enter an amount that makes sense to your current financial situation amidst this crisis. Please don't hesitate to contact membership@nationalguild.org if you have any questions or concerns.

For divisions, list your divisional budget, including est. overheads.

This discount will be automatically calculated into your Final Due below. Your eligibility for this discount will be reviewed along with your application and you will be invoiced for any balance.

 

For any questions regarding your membership application and/or discount, please contact membership@nationalguild.org.
