Corresponding Affiliate

    Annual Dues: $4,000


    Only qualifying educational nonprofit organizations (501c3, 501c4 or 501c6) or qualifying governmental organizations may join CGS as Corresponding Affiliates. Corresponding Affiliates receive the benefits of high-level membership in CGS for a discounted dues rate. Because Corresponding Affiliates are more closely aligned with institutional members of CGS, their benefits and dues structure reflect these priorities. CGS welcomes suggestions and ideas for other benefits that might be valuable to you or opportunities for our organizations to collaborate.
