Institute Set to Raise Membership Rates for First Time in a Generation
Thursday, December 1, 2016
For the first time in more than 25 years, the National Institute of Building Sciences will increase annual membership dues for its individual members, beginning February 1, 2017. This nominal increase in dues will adjust for inflation, yet it still remains in line, or below, the membership fees of other building industry-related organizations.
For more than 40 years, the Institute has successfully brought together stakeholders to collaborate on issues that affect the construction of safe, affordable residential and commercial structures in the United States. Members of the Institute are vital to the Institute’s ability to properly serve the public interest and disseminate critical industry news and research.
With this increase in membership dues, the Institute will be able to effectively continue its ongoing efforts to lead the industry and support advances in building sciences and technology, improve the performance of the nation’s built environment, reduce waste and conserve energy and natural resources.
Members of the Institute are eligible to actively participate on councils and committees and directly affect change to improve the built environment. Their membership entitles them to a free subscription to the Journal of the National Institute of Building Sciences (JNIBS) and free access to the BRIK Building Research Information Knowledgebase powered by EBSCO. In addition, all Institute members receive discounts on webinars, registration for Institute events, purchases of Institute reports and standards, and gain free access to conference papers.
Updated rates will be $225 for industry sector members; $125 for public interest sector members; and $40 for student members.
