In accordance with our Strategic Plan 2015-18, DanceNL has revised the parameters of its membership categories. These changes take effect April 1st, 2016.
There are two chief differences from the previous structure:
- Organizational Membership has been split into Not-for-Profit Organization and Business Membership. The cost of, and benefits provided to, both categories are identical, but this division allows DanceNL to better assess the needs of its membership.
- A new Youth Membership has been introduced.
Please view the table below and the Definition of Terms to see which category is the best for you. If you have any questions, please contact us.
