105 Membership Fees, Professional & Managerial Staff

If a Department Head makes it a condition of employment that an employee join or maintain membership in a professional association or society, the College or Department will pay the annual membership fees of the association or society. The University will not pay initiation fees.

The University will not pay fees if it only requires that an employee be eligible for membership in a professional association or society. The University will not pay fees if an employee opts to belong to such an association or society of their own volition.

In certain instances the University or College or Department may wish to obtain an association or society membership to further University interests. Such memberships should be in the name of the University or College or Department, unless the association requires the name of an individual. The President on behalf of the University, or a Dean or Director on behalf of a College or Department, should approve such memberships.
