New Membership Structure Coming in July 2017

The NAMI Board of Directors periodically evaluates NAMI’s membership program to ensure that it meets the needs of the organization and its members. This year after a lengthy review and evaluation process that took into consideration your feedback, the Board of Directors has decided to add a Household membership category to our membership structure.

In addition to the Household membership category, the Board has decided to increase the dues for Regular and Open Door memberships. All of these changes will become effective as of July 1, 2017 as outlined below:

Household Membership $60
Regular Membership $40
Open Door Membership $5

A household membership will apply to everyone living in a single household. Regular and Open Door memberships will apply only to one individual.

For voting purposes, each membership (including Household) will be counted as one (1) membership.
