How much is membership?
Our full membership rate is $50/mo
For students and prospective members dealing with financial hardship we have reduced rates available which we approach on a personal and case by case basis. For more information please email [email protected] for additional information.
NESIT has no other external funding, so membership dues provide the money necessary to pay for our rent, heating, electricity, Internet, and Insurance. All of our board members and officers are compensated by the satisfaction they receive building NESIT, and helping others. (We work for free). And like all members, our board and officers also pay dues.
