Frequently Asked Questions about Calendar Membership and Renewal

Why a Calendar Year Membership?

iNAPS adopted a calendar year membership to be in alignment with other organizations of the same size and staffing capability.  Click here to learn more about calendar method used by the majority of small member and trade organizations for enrolling and renewing members.

What if I join mid-year?

Our newsletters, webinars, and communications to members are archived and available on our website. Even if you join mid-year or toward the end of the year, you can access all of the member information sent prior to your join date. And the value of member benefits far exceeds the 2018 $35 membership fee.

Below is a short list of benefits provided in 2017:

  • Member discount of $50 over the non-member registration fee for the annual conference.
  • Free video of the keynote presentations on our website.
  • CE credit through live and recorded webinars of recognized leaders of the peer support movement. Certificates for CE credit are available only to members.
  • Regular newsletters and updates with news and announcements
  • Opportunities to participate in research relevant to the peer specialist community

We hope you’ll agree the value exceeds the $35 fee you pay, regardless of when you join.

But when you get right down to it, the true value of any membership (like joining a gym) really depends on how much you choose to participate and put back into it so that all can benefit from your contributions!

We encourage you to join early in 2018 so you don’t miss out on what’s coming next!
