RE: CDTC Annual Membership Fee

Starting May 2018 Chemical Dependency Training Consortium of the Northwest will be instituting an annual membership fee. The annual membership fee was presented and voted upon at the Annual CDTC Membership Meeting in April 2018. The CDTC is implementing a membership fee in order to continue the development and value of continuing education training, as well as assisting professionals with the requirements of their continued credentials. Member agencies receive promotional recognition and exposure at monthly training events and on CDTC website and social media. Member agency staff, volunteers, and interns turn to the Consortium for educational programs, training, support, and networking related to their careers. Inclusion in this network and access to professionals, collaborative projects, and idea exchange during trainings are key benefits to agency membership.

This membership fee is going to be collected starting May of 2018. The fee is $500 per agency. The fee will be due annually. Annual fees are non-refundable. The Chemical Dependency Training Consortium of the Northwest is a 501(c)(3) educational organization. Please see the attached Membership Agreement for additional information. Any dues not received by June 1, 2018 will result in suspension of your agency membership status.
