Announcement: Change in international membership dues
The STTI international dues have not been increased since 2008. After serious deliberations by the International Board of Directors, and in accordance with the international bylaws, the board voted in February 2012 to increase the international dues. Based on the international bylaws, the amount of the increase was determined by the Consumer Price Index (CPI). Effective 1 July 2012, the international membership dues will increase by US $4.50 for High Income Countries. Learn more.
