I. Guidelines

This arrangement only applies to: new NCSS Regular Individual Members and new NCSS Comprehensive Individual Members

  • Councils *must be affiliated* and must send NCSS a complete and correct detail list of their dues.
  • Your council will keep either 50% of the new NCSS Regular dues ($33) OR your state council dues, which ever is more. (If your affiliate dues are $35, you send NCSS $31 for NCSS regular membership). After a year, renewal at NCSS will be separate from state renewal and charges will return to “normal.”
It does not apply to :
  • NCSS Member Renewals
  • New Student Members
  • New Retired Members
II. 3 Simple Steps

1) Affiliate Council fills out brokering tally sheet (downloadable form)

2) Affiliate Council sends membership applications, a copy of brokering tally sheet and a check to NCSS for our portion of the total brokered dues.

3) NCSS processes membership in a timely fashion.

III. Potential risks of Processing Delays or Errors—Everyone Loses!

o Councils must send in their memberships as they are received. Waiting weeks to accumulate memberships will result in unhappy members who feel like they are being treated badly by the local, state and the national council, or all three. Just as the arrangement will work to our mutual benefit if handled properly, if there are processing delays on either end both parties will loose out.

o Councils will be billed by NCSS for any renewal that has been sent in as a new brokered membership. Resolving these cases can also lead to delays and more angry members.

Benefits of Brokering—Everyone Wins!
  • Affiliate council gains a source of revenue (half of the collected dues)
  • NCSS gains a new member—a chance to showcase the resources we provide and the benefits of becoming a long-term member
  • New member gains access to high-quality professional leadership and support while contributing to their state council.
  • If the affiliate chooses to bundle the brokered NCSS membership with an affiliate membership, the affiliate also gains a new member and the new joint member gets discounted access to professional support at both the state and national levels!
