 Announcement on the Change of ICSA Membership Fees

There has been no change on the regular fee for 16 years, and no change on lifetime membership for 7 years. The income from current membership fees can cover less than half of ICSA expenses. Unlike ASA, ENAR and IMS, current ICSA operations are mainly based on volunteers. Although ICSA pays IT and office staff, the payment is minimal and our IT needs much more investment to keep current support, let alone better support. The membership fee has been reviewed by the membership committee several times and the rate change has been discussed in the board of directors meetings.
