With dues paid annually and with membership status in good standing, PESC benefits are available to member organizations. Representatives from member organizations then volunteer to join a PESC group or committee with other volunteers from PESC member organizations and together we aspire toward and achieve common goals. Each organization is asked to designate one official voting representative to serve as that organization's official PESC representative. Once a member though, there is no limit on the number of representatives an organization can volunteer on any PESC group or committee.

For associations that are members of PESC, payment of dues enables both unlimited staff participation in PESC and extension of PESC member benefits to its membership as well. The first five (5) representatives from an association's membership can participate at no extra charge. After five (5), a $500 per person fee is assessed. Associations are required to identify and submit the names and contact information for those representatives designated under the umbrella policy on an annual basis. As the association is the member though, official voting remains the sole responsibility of the association.
Please note that members and affiliates may pay the Membership costs for another organization. Such sponsorships are important for those organizations, especially LEAs, schools, colleges and universities that have a vested interest in joining PESC but have budgetary restrictions.
