    FAQ

    What is tier membership?

    Tier membership provides for a minimum and maximum number of individuals at the same organization to receive NACE member benefits for one fee. (At colleges and universities, the IPEDS number is used to determine if individuals are at "the same organization." )

    What is the advantage to this type of membership?

    This model emphasizes delivering benefits to everyone who needs them, with less paperwork and hassle. Everyone gets the same benefits.

    Under the old membership model, there were two types of members-organizational and e-member. Depending on which membership you held, you received a certain set of benefits. E-members, for example, didn't receive Salary Survey as part of their membership; if an e-member wanted to receive Salary Survey, he or she had to take a separate subscription, meaning more paperwork.

    Who manages the membership? How does this work?

    One person is designated as the key contact for the membership; this person initiates and manages the membership; he or she designates who, in addition to him- or herself, receives member benefits, adds individuals to any open spots in the tier, and receives the renewal notice on behalf of all.

    Who gets which benefits? Who is the member?

    Everyone in the tier is a member and receives the same benefits: Each person designated to receive member benefits receives an individual login and password; these may not be shared.

    Can an organization have more than one membership?

    Yes. Because each membership must have a key contact, it may not be feasible for your organization to have just one membership.

    For example, the College of Business career center and the College of Liberal Arts career center may each maintain their own membership tier: Each has a key contact who identifies the benefit recipients and handles the renewal.

    What if we have four people who want benefits? Can we pro-rate the fee for Tier 3-5?

    No, you cannot prorate the fee. Each tier is covered by a flat fee. However, you can designate another individual to receive membership benefits any time.

    Can we change who is designated to receive member benefits?

    You can reassign membership benefits, if an individual in your membership tier leaves or takes on a different job function. However, you may not reassign benefits from one existing staff member to another.

    Can we add members?

    Yes. There are two ways to do this.

    1. You can add as many individuals as you have openings: For example, you have selected Tier 11-25, but only have 18 individuals designated to receive benefits. In this case, you can assign seven more individuals at your organization to receive benefits. There is no additional charge for this.
    2. If you need to add individuals but do not have any openings in your current membership, you can make additions for $150 per individual. This is a flat fee. When your membership is up for renewal, you will renew under the appropriate tier.
