Dues Proration 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 a year) pay Society dues, a $30.00 enrollment fee, and chapter and SIG fees (if applicable).
Proration: If you join after January, the system will calculate your dues based on the number of months remaining in the year (including the month in which you join).
|Membership Type||Dues||Emerging Nations|
|SIG Value Package||$24.58||$24.58|
|New TC Professional||$13.34||$13.34|
The prorated dues amount is based only on Society dues. Unless included in your membership level, chapters, SIGs, and publications are additional costs and are not prorated. Chapters are $25 each and SIGs are $10 each. For emerging nations, the cost for chapters and SIGs are discounted at $10.00 each and $5.00 each, respectively.
Membership includes electronic access to publications. If you would like to receive printed versions, a subscription is required. Please use the prorated calculations provided below.
- Technical Communication: Multiply $18.75 by the number of issues remaining in the year
- Intercom : Multiply $6.00 by the number of issues remaining in the year
(Technical Communication is published in February, May, August, and November. Intercom is published in January, February, March, April, May, June, July, September, November, and December.)
