Tiered Dues Discussion Materials

NCHC is at a financial crossroads.  Our institutional dues rate of $500 per institutional member has not changed since 2005. Our costs of running NCHC, however, have increased with inflation over the past thirteen years.  In fact, if we had put in an inflation adjustment in 2005, our current dues rate would be $634.21.  In short, we are holding ourselves back from serving our membership as best we can.  Now, more than ever, we should be working together as best we can to support a strong national voice for honors education.  

After over two years of study and planning, the NCHC Board of Directors at the winter meeting voted to submit to the membership a proposal for a new tiered-structure for institutional dues.  This proposal is meant to create a transparent and fairer system for assessing the costs of organizational membership.  This proposal will be on the ballot for the membership to vote upon immediately following the 2018 conference.  If approved, it will not go into effect until 2020.  

You can access the details of the proposal below.  To help answer questions about this proposal, we will be hosting several conference calls in the coming months. There will also be a special session at the 2018 conference in Boston dedicated to fielding questions about this proposal.  In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at
