The AACE International Board of Directors announced that that regular membership dues for 2011 will be $143, a ten percent increase from this year’s level. “Amazingly, this will be the first AACE dues increase in nearly a decade,” noted AACE President Stephen O. Revay, CCC, CFCC.
“With Association expenses continuing to rise and AACE services and benefits expanding, it was apparent that we needed to bring dues up to a level to support our mission. Based upon the U.S. government consumer price index, we actually would require $157.66 to replicate the purchasing power of $130 in 2002. With membership dues contributing less than 30% to our operational budgets, we believe our members receive a tremendous value for their dues investment when compared to peer professional associations,” Revay commented.
The dues increase will be reflected in 2011 renewal statements for memberships expiring on or after January 1, 2011. Members joining for the first time may join AACE International for a 12-month period for the current dues of $130 plus a $10 processing fee until January 1. The dues increase will also change the corporate sponsorship program which will now be set at $1164, a 10% increase for the 8 memberships that are included in the price of CSP membership.
