At the MN WIFT membership meeting last month, our members approved a big change in our membership structure. This bylaws change gets rid of the Associate Membership category and brings together all members (except for those in the Student+ Level) under the Full Member Category at the dues level of $55/year. Our hope is that this change will make Full Membership in MN WIFT more accessible to more women working in media. This change simplifies our membership structure and gives all members beyond the Student+ Level full voice in choosing our leadership and shaping the future of MN WIFT. Please see details below.
Membership rate changes:
- Full Membership is now $55/yr (compared to $85/yr before the change).
- Associate Members will become Full members in 2019.
- The new Student+ category now includes those in their first year in the business, whether or not they had previously been a student. After that first year, membership renews at the Full rate and the member must be approved by the board. The Student+ Membership rate is $25/yr.
- Corporate memberships are now $250 for 6 members and $500 for 12 members.
