Dues Schedule Policy

STC membership is based on a calendar year. All memberships expire on 31 December. Individuals joining STC for the first time (or former members whose membership has lapsed more than one year) pay Society dues, a $10.00 enrollment fee, and chapter and SIG fees (if applicable). Because the full range of STC products and services is available to members immediately upon joining or renewing, STC dues are nonrefundable. For organizations interested in the Corporate Value Program (CVP), click here for more information. The Gold Value Package membership dues rate is $395 throughout the year.
