Association "Umbrella" Policy

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.

Membership Sponsors
