Dues Schedule Policy

 

STC membership is based on a calendar year. All memberships expire on 31 December. Individuals joining STC for the first time (or former members whose membership has lapsed more than a year) pay Society dues, a $30.00 enrollment fee, and chapter and SIG fees (if applicable). 

If you join after February, the system will calculate your dues based on the schedule below. The Gold Value Package is available through 31 May and costs $425.
