All nonprofit organizations that support the public health continuum are eligible to apply for membership. Members are approved by the Coalition’s Board of Directors. Our 2013 dues are tiered according to an organization’s size as follows:
- $4,000 per year for organizations with operating budgets exceeding $20 million.
- $3,000 per year for organizations with operating budgets greater than $1 million and less than $20 million.
$1,750 per year for organizations with operating budgets less than $1 million.
Organizations that are ineligible for membership or cannot take full advantage of membership benefits may apply as affiliates. Affiliates are approved by the Coalition’s Board of Directors, and are subject to annual review for renewal.Affiliate dues are based on the type of organization, as follows:
- $500 per year for nonprofit organizations that do not have a “Washington presence,” e.g., they are located outside of Washington, D.C. area and do not have a representative in the Washington, D.C. area.
- $5,000 for for-profit entities.
Affiliates may receive the Coalition’s daily Member Updates, be listed on our website as affiliates, access our member management system, and gain visibility in Washington through sponsorship of Coalition events. Affiliates do not have a vote, per the Coalition’s bylaws; are not eligible and/or available to participate in the Coalition’s D.C.-based meetings; and may not serve on the Board of Directors.
