WIFS Membership Information

 

WIFS membership runs on an annual basis from January 1st through December 31st. The WIFS dues structure and calendar is a single renewal date for all of our valued members.  All current WIFS members renew annually on January 1st and pay the full dues amount for the upcoming year.  New WIFS members pay a prorated amount when joining during the year, for both National and Chapter dues depending on what month you choose to join.

Affiliated with a Chapter? No problem!
