Although our chapter at SUNY Oswego does not require student's to become a national member, there are great benefits that come from doing so. The fee is only $47.00 and supplies students with a great number of resources to aid in online seminars, case studies, employment and internship searching, various certifications and much more.
If interested in becoming a national member email email@example.com for more information.
