Types of Members
There are Three Types of Membership in the Association.
a) INSTITUTIONAL PROGRAM MEMBERSHIP: Only Veteran Upward Bound Projects can be an institutional membership. Any professional staff member, as verified by the Director of the relevant VUB Project, of an institutional program member, whose current year’s membership dues are paid in full is allowed to vote on all NAVUB business matters where a full membership vote is required.
Additionally, senior institutional TRIO directors who are the direct, first, and immediate supervisors of the VUB project personnel will also be eligible to participate in all NAVUB matters, including full membership voting. Such voters are also referred to as institutional program members.
b) AFFILIATE MEMBERSHIP: Individuals, institutions, organizations and/or agencies which are supportive of the purposes of NAVUB are eligible for affiliate membership. Affiliate members, or their representatives, as applicable, are NOT allowed to vote or to hold office. Annual dues must be paid yearly.
c) HONORARY LIFE MEMBERSHIP: This membership is bestowed on individuals, institutions, organizations or agencies whose special concern or services have benefited veterans or NAVUB. The bestowing of this honorary life membership takes place after a majority affirmative vote of the institutional members. Honorary life members, or their representatives, as applicable, are NOT allowed to vote or to hold office.
Membership is renewed each year by paying annual dues and must be paid prior to the Annual Conference that typically occurs in the spring. Membership is per program, not per individual staff member.
