WICT Membership Categories
WICT offers four levels of membership: EXECUTIVE, REGULAR, ENTRY and STUDENT.
WICT structures membership dues based on your career level. This tiered system provides a more affordable alternative to those just starting their career journey. Our flexibility in membership pricing offers options from first-hire throughout your career advancement.
Benefit for those members renewing: As an added benefit of WICT membership, renewing members who are in-between jobs may take advantage of deeply discounted dues. For more information on the TRANSITIONAL member program, please contact the Member Services Department at email@example.com or call at 703.234.9817 or 9811.
EXECUTIVE ($315 per year; $630 for two years*) members are typically senior management professionals in director-level and higher positions.
Benefits include: At the global level, Executive members are offered exclusive access to a distance-learning program that takes the form of webinars designed expressly for high-level executives. Locally, chapters hold various live and electronic programs just for executive members. Also at the local level, these members may vote in chapter elections and can hold chapter board positions.**
REGULAR ($215 per year; $430 for two years*) members generally hold mid-level or supervisory positions.
Benefits include: Value-added free webinars, mid-level level programs and targeted messaging geared toward your career level, and more. At the local level, these members may vote in chapter elections and can hold chapter board positions.**
ENTRY ($95 per year) members occupy non-salaried (hourly) positions with no supervisory or direct budgetary responsibilities and less than two years’ experience in any facet of the cable telecommunications industry. After two years at this level, Entry level members will be automatically upgraded to Regular level.
Benefits include: Value-added free webinars, entry-level programs and targeted messaging geared toward your career level. At the local level, these members are not eligible to vote in chapter elections and cannot serve on the chapter board.
STUDENT ($35 per year) members are full-time students currently earning 6 credit hours at graduate level or 12 credit hours at undergraduate level. Students are required to provide current proof of enrollment along with expected year of graduation. Student membership can be renewed for a maximum of 4 years at this level. After 4 years, students are automatically upgraded to Entry level.
Benefits include: The same benefits as Entry level members, with the added value of opportunities to network and build relationships for future opportunities, student mentoring programs through the local chapters, and more. Student members are not eligible to vote in chapter elections and cannot serve on the chapter board.
* Voting membership levels are important in selecting WICT chapter volunteer leaders and required for serving as a WICT chapter volunteer leader.
New members are welcome to join at anytime, however membership is based on the calendar year (January – December) and not the anniversary of your join date. If you join after January, you will receive a pro-rated credit on the following year’s dues renewal for those months you were not a member. Renewals for the following year are processed starting November 1.
