Are you a recent graduate?! The "Career Starter Dues Program" offers reduced dues rates for members in their first five years of Active category membership eligibility. Dues increase incrementally each year for up to five years to help you get established in the profession. The Career Starter Dues Program allows you to renew your Academy membership at a significantly reduced rate, giving you the financial flexibility and time to learn how to take advantage of the various services the Academy offers. Graduation date can be used in lieu of eligibility date for those who do not pursue a CDR credential. Student members who recently established eligibility for a CDR credential will automatically be moved into this program and Active category membership during the next membership renewal cycle. Please contact the Academy's Member Service Center at 800/877-1600, ext. 5000 or by email. Representatives are available weekdays 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. (Central time).
