NYS Council 2020 Membership Renewal

January 23, 2020

Last month we sent out information about our 2020 membership dues for renewal with the NYS Council. As we have been reporting, this year will be very challenging for our sector and standing together will be essential. We hope you will continue to support our organization by renewing your membership with us.

As a reminder, the NYS Council does not send out invoices to each organization but instead we send our 2020 Dues Calculation Worksheet as well as our blank 2020 Invoice for you to complete. These forms allow you to calculate the amount of your membership dues.

We ask that membership dues be paid by March 1.

The NYS Council has not raised our membership dues for over 16 years and we won’t be increasing dues for the coming year. However, the National Council for Behavioral Health does increase their membership dues each year and we pass that increase on to you. Most NYS Council members purchase a membership for their organization with both the NYS Council and the National Council through us, taking advantage of a great deal we have negotiated with our colleagues in Washington, DC on your behalf. Ordinarily a membership with the National Council would cost your organization close to $4,000/year if you were to purchase it on your own. We strongly encourage you to renew both memberships through us but you are not required to purchase a National Council membership through the NYS Council in order to renew your membership with us.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at lauri@nyscouncil.org or at 518-461-8200.

Thank you for your continued membership and support!
